hey you got anyhting for a rear stuck axle.. 85-87?

Next step in rage ...I am literally going to cut it off the car if it takes 4 wheels and half a day.

I had to drill the pin out, got a look inside.. lo and behold the axle is too small for the shaft..yet it is installed anyway. this is on the diff side..

I want to put a front axle on the back, do away with the extra stub shaft, go one piece of a front one...

1. You can't do that. The back axles have a DOJ on both ends, it just won't work. There's nothing wrong with the stub.

2. It's BS that you have a smaller axle installed. There's only one size. It's just rusted on there. Use more PB blaster and a bigger hammer. Good luck....

I could cut a 3 main crank with my voo doo.

its a tractor trailer sized world out there ya know...don't let the EJ midgetize you.

and I really do have a mismatched setup about the rear diff, the axle is normal, I refer to way splines mount to diff stub.

I did learn of an xt6 rear end that shipped as 3.9 and lsd, elusive to find.... this may be the culprit, in conjunction with say a 2wd inner doj or whatever.. Remember the 85-87 shipped with every error known to subaru...including 6 bolt holes sleeved for a big engine that never happened. (the loyle has them, but arenlt sleeved in all six.. the GL adds to mystery) It is so mismatched and obviously slammed force fit by a machine .. even the side diff bolts are broken.. only two remain today...and proven to not even be under a stress that dictates the broken bolts. subaru put this together, I have nodoubts, and it is simply wrong.

the doj is not all that hard... I was thinking of taking axle apart after removing whole rear end, drilling doj, and making grooves for a gear puller... still a long day, no matter what I do.

I did leave off with pb blaster, which is the most useless chemical since seafoam for an engine...

I won't say too much, but PB blaster is the POOP if used properly. Just give it time to soak, and use some heat, Those thing can be a real pain, and sometimes are easier to pound on when the whole unit is of the car

so, does anyone know someone who does sand blasting for cheap? or should I just sand the hell out of them?

Anyone built their own skid plate? I'm thinking about it

I thought about it, but for the price of materials it was easier just to buy one from primative. Plus I confused the fudge out of my mailroom chick in college.

Are those measurements exact? Any chance you can get a measurement for rear bolt holes? Pming you my number if you don't still have it

It shall be done, I always forget to take pictures, I'll have to try and remember this time. But the imageshack app should make upload easier

so I took some pictures, but i'm not bothering with a write up. For the amount of time I had in it alone I would have rather bought one, and my end result wasnt as pretty looking. Still functions though
