I was changing the balljoint on the right side of my '98 Legacy Outback. When the balljoint came out of the control arm it caused the driveaxle to pull out of the differential. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that instead of the driveaxle having a splined shaft that goes into the differential like my previous car, the shaft goes over a splined shaft sticking out of the differential and is held in place with a spring pin. Unfortunately the axle was still connected to the shaft with the pin and it was the shaft itself that pulled out of the differential. Is this as bad as it seems? Is it something I can fix or is my differential shot? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
have the same problem?
