Unhappy My injured Subaru is going in...wish me luck.

Dropping my car off at Ron Price motors today...feels like I'm dropping a friend off to get surgery. Looks like over 55 hours of track time last year, plus rally-xing and other "non-standard" driving has taken it's toll.

Looks like clutch work of some sort, front left suspension/strut or CV joint (not sure what is making the noise now, but it's now really bad), viscous coupling (replaced once by Subaru already, sounds like the bearing race is broken again).

I have 23 k on my car. Hopefully this visit doesn't become a fiscal wipeout.

I wish I could go to Santa Cruz since I've heard so much good stuff about them but it's impossible given my work schedule.

ahhh, just lamenting. So far the service dept. at Ron price has been good to me...

wish me luck.

Good luck Angus... Let us know what your experience with Ron Price is. Do you have any mods on your car? If so, I'd like to know if they take kindly to mod'ed cars!

thanks,
dave.

Unhappy

I'm taking the Stromung off before it goes in. The only mod I have is the UR pulley, which isn't coming off any time soon If they think the pulley has anything to do with the suspension or clutch or diff I will go crazy.

Other than that, I should be ok....yeah right!

I'll keep y'all informed. Dealers can be evil. Why are there no local Subaru mechanics? With a SAAB, VW/Audi, Ford, Toyota, Honda etc etc it seems you always have the option of the savvy local guy who does wonders for cheap...I can't find anyone for my Scoob.

cheers,
SF

Subaru now sells front strut braces right? Maybe they won;t freak, since I forgot to take that off.

No word yet!
