Default 02 WRX right front axle information needed.

When it rains it pours, now I have a clicking sound coming from the right axle/CV joint in very tight low speed turns.

About rebuilt axles, I have seen them advertized on the local Subaru websites, never looked at prices.

Any suggestions? I am under 60K miles warrantee wise but I figure with the aftermarket struts, springs, wheels and tires SOA would not take a second look and ask me to walk.

Thanks,
2002 WRX Wagon
Greg Downing.

When I did axles for the turbo Legacy, the dealer wanted around $180 for a front axle (and that's my special price - I think list was $230-ish...).

Napa carries Reman axles (for the Legacy) for $55 plus a core charge, with a lifetime warranty. I've got about 15K on my new reman axles on the legacy with no problems...

I've heard bad things about reman axles (all the same stories I'm sure you've heard...), but I figure with a lifetime replacement guarantee & the fact that it takes all of 20 minutes to swap an axle, reman is ok.

I don't know if they'll have them for an '02 yet... The axles for my 91 looked identical to the 02, but I didn't measure them... The trannies are interchangeable, the hubs are interchangeable, stands to reason the axles are too...

I have heard bad things about the NAPA rebuilds on the GTX and DSM sites. I want to go OEM if I can. Some of the SOA online stores carry listings and I have pinged Allsubaru about prices and Subarparts website is down this morning. They list the axles right on the front page as a link.
Thanks, Austin.
