Finally onto the main reason why I had to do all of this extra work past the wheel bearing, boot was pretty ripped. I was tempted to repair it, but EMPI axles are $67 shipped, hard to beat that.
Another reason to remove the axle was, the car was bleeding smurf blood due to the axle seal being reused by the shop that did the TOB work!
Got a new seal at Subaru, Part # 806735300, they are about $8 a piece. I at first went to Advance auto, not only did I get the wrong seal (wasn't really showing up in their system) it was more expensive then Subaru seal!
I was able to push it in with bare hands, not sure if I'm happy or worried about that part, with Nissan I'm used to dedicated at least an hour just to get the stupid seals in, this guy went in within 5 minutes!
New axle was a breeze to install too, I gotta say this was the fastest axle/seal job I've ever done.
