1987 gl 4wd turbo

Default 87 gl turbo 4wd wagon....repair parts ...costs sources

i have in my hot little hands the keys to an 87 gl turbo 4wd wagon....
i have looked it over and here is what i see for immediate repairs:

1) right frt hafl shaft assy

2) left frt hd lite assy(moisture in side..???)

3) front rotors...pads look well but rotors are long gone...

what are the correct frt rotors ??? saw way to many in search... from 10 to 40 bucks ?????

saw only one frt hd lite assy.....it was a right for $$$210.....ouch.....the bulb works and the lens has a small crack wiht moisture in the assembly...any suggestions ???

would look like cardone is the source for shaft assy's........any other sources ??
( i work in sales at a subbie dealer.....this car has a mere 153k and some rust...but is clean with a small list of repairs to be completed as time and funds permit.)

Headlight.. junkyard..

Everything else(aside from wear items..)... junkyard or www.ultimatesubaru.net

Try looking up rotors for an 87-89 RX.. same ones, but no confusion as theres should be only one part number..

One thing I have learned is when asking for parts, either from the dealer or a parts store, unless it is EXTREMELY year specific.. For my 87 Turbo wagon, I usually ask for parts for a 90 loyale turbo.. that way theres no chance of them screwing it up and getting EA81 parts.. if I need EA81 parts, I usually ask for parts for an 84 wagon.. works about 98% of the time.

If junkyards out there dont have headlights, check e-bay, anymore than $30 for them is too much in my opinion...

Last resort, I can get one for you and ship it out to you from Oregon.

And Caleb is right... pretty safe to ask for parts either for an RX or a 90 loyale turbo.

As for the new CV joint... either a junkyard could be promising or I would just get a new one from the dealer... they are pricey but way better than the ones at autozone.

for the headlight, just take it out, open it up, dry the inside, and re-seal it with silicone. once it dries, it might fog up a little, but once it does, use a hair-dryer on it until it dries, and you're good to go.
