Started late and had two runs to the pressure wash. The first to de-grime the carrier, the second to do the same for the front axle shafts and universals. The front joints were great so I re-used them. Glass bead blasted today then hosed off then painted.
The seals were so easy to install with the pumpkin opened up and removed from the vehicle- just turn and position to the best advantage. The carrier went in real fast. A spreader would have been useful. Didn't have one so I just smashed it in with a massive sledge hammer... just kidding!!
The spindles got new torrington bearings and I used the "umbrella" style seals. I'll see how they work out. I no-seized the spindle mating surfaces then torqued them to 65 foot pounds.
So- to the wheel hubs and rotors tomorrow and control arms and wheels thenout of the garage it goes for a Subaru clutch job... Then engine/drivetrain positioning and other great stuff.
