Those (L and R) are what are causing a large amount of the noise I hear in my rear end ( :moon: ) according to my local mechanic. I got home and squeezed under my car and when I grabbed onto them and shook them front to rear, there was a lot of movement and clanking noise. Clearly they were poorly installed.
When I bought the car used in Jan.03, we bought the parts from the dealer with the agreement that the seller of the car would install them, and knock the price of the parts off of the car. Apparently this moron didn't really know what he was doing...cause they died after only a year!
I called the Subaru dealer...and I missed the warranty on the parts by 1 month! ARGH!
I've sent a PM to Peaty about this: http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&postid=622, I'm waiting for a reply. I wonder of those Kartboy links would work in my OB.
If any of you think they'd be ok, let me know!
The OEM Subaru links cost $75.86 each. LAME, they are SO SMALL...and RUBBER. The Kartboy ones are $100 a pair, and they are solid.
(PS: No comments about the tire, I KNOW it's bald! Unfortunately I can't justify putting expensive replacements on a car with 141k miles! And the ContiExtremes aren't made for 15s! Yokohama has a few 15s with decent prices/reviews)
