    Hello everyone! I own a 1999 Legacy OB with 248k miles on it. It has driven strong and well for the 6 months that I’ve owned it so far and I’ve been keeping up with regular maintance. I just had someone replace my worn out OEM struts and springs with 2008 Forester struts and springs. The car...

    Hi guys, I’m at my wit’s end here. Trying to replace the seal that was leaking in my front passenger axle at the diff. I’ve gotten to the point of pulling the axle from the diff, and I cannot get it to budge past the point shown in the attached photos. It was easy to get it out that much, now...

    Before I dig in and start replacing stuff, can anyone help guide me on these leaks? 2007 OB 2.5L NA. I’m not sure if the CV (passenger side) is coming from the shaft seal or from the inner most boot clamp. The boot appear in tact (and clean), yet the diff fluid it perfectly full (and clean)...

    Hey everyone!, I'm here today to hopefully have parts wisdom bestowed onto me in the form of a cv axle shaft I'm replacing in my subaru outback limited 2.5i front passenger side. Normally I'm sure I'd get loads of input on many different awesome parts from around the parts world with great...

    My car has been making a clicking noise when I turn my car slow or fast. The clicking seems to happen a lot more when I have just started my car for the first time in the day. But when I've been driving it for 20-30 min, the clicking seems to have faded away. Then it all happens again when I...

    Hey everyone! I’ve had my 07 outback limited for a few years now and like the title says it has a brand new engine. Now that’s kind of a long story but we put a brand new crate motor in it back in June at 188,180 miles. The car now has 196,134, so almost 8000 miles in 7 months (I drive a lot). 3...

    So my front inboard axle boots are ripped, I don't really know how long they have been ripped and don't know how much grease is left, and my next question is where to get replacements? local parts store? (pep boys, Autozone, O'reily) or Dealer? Dealer Cv replacement axle = 400$ Dealer CV Boot...

    My cv axle is seized into my hub assembly at this point I’ve given up trying to remove it and am just trying to find a new steering knuckle as I’m rebuilding my entire suspension anyways. As it so happens tho it is almost impossible to find a steering knuckle for my 1999 legacy outback anywhere...

    Can’t say I wasn’t expecting this, but just wanted to see if anyone had alleviated the issue with another part swap. I get a decent clunk "pop" noise while accelerating while turning and straight away on my front left wheel area. It only happens in the morning while the car is cold. Its been...

    Hello, I'm new to these forums after deciding that I want to take better care of my Outback, and make sure it runs well for some years to come. Axels and Shakes A year back, I had to get my front right axle replaced (common problem with boot over the exhaust) out with some cheap one from...
  15. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I noticed some clunking while turning at a slow speed, so I took the car in today. Diagnosed as a bad driver's side axle. 24k miles and a bad axle already?! I don't off road, not hard on my car, no suspension lift, etc. Has anybody else had issues with the axle/CV at such an early stage...

    I recently just replaced a front Driver side CV axle. With a Napa NMD 942043 basically a rebranded Cardone Select 637355HD, HD meaning Heavy Duty which is why I choose it. Almost identical looking to oem. After the previous cheap aftermarket from Advance Auto Started to go, causing vibrations in...

    I posted a thread about this not to long ago and got an answer pointing to the front end suspension. This could still be the case but after a quick inspection of all the bushings and looking for play, I couldn't find any issues. Below I'll link a video with me driving and demonstrating the...

    So I have been throwing parts at my car trying to fix a small repetitive clunking noise over smaller bumps until I finally discovered it was my CV axle. My previous drivers side CV axle was giving me back and forth play so I went to a subaru dealership to get a subaru remanufactured axle. After...

    I've had a terrible scraping noise the last couple of days, so I decided to check underneath my car. After driving up on the curb I saw that the front right CV axle boot was torn. I know this is a common issue on boxer engine cars, but I was really hoping that it was just a brake shield or...

    Although not related specifically to an Outback, I just recently replaced my wife's CV axles on her '06 Legacy. Of course, I used guides from this forum and had even previously swapped out the CV's on my '16 Outback in an attempt to get rid of the lift-kit wobble. Honestly, it's one of the...
