99 (Violet), 01 (Rhonda), & 05 (Grace) 2.5 Outback Wagons
Hey all, I'm just about finished up with some maintenance on my wife's 99 Outback Wagon, and the last part to go on was an OEM ball joint, directly from our local Subaru dealer (W&L, always excellent to deal with). They have since closed their parts department, due to this virus, and I can't get ahold of them, at all. The new ball joint did not come with a nut or cotter pin... ALL new ball joints are supposed to come with new nuts and pins, you are not to reuse the old ones (standard procedure), so why on Earth would Subaru not give me one??? I am having a horrible time trying to find them online (or anywhere for that matter...). They're an M12 x 1.25 ultra fine thread, and the only one that I found in that thread is only grade 8.8... and that's not in stock for at least a month. does anyone know where I can find one?
