The CV joint can be the same, but not sure because you don't mention the year of the cars

Hi there I want to know if the cv axle of 1994 subaru svx is the same with the cv axle of impreza, legacy or forester? Thanks


Wrong place to ask

You look on parts web sites
You look at auto part sites
You may at a salvage yard get cross reference data
Auto Parts Store if want to may look up several vehicles
to answer that

What you NEVER do is install any used part in any vehicle

What you do is go to Rock Auto.Com & buy a new or reman
& install it

No reason to even get into this

Just buy a new part,you do not want used in a
drive axle & have an unsafe vehicle

You have to know the year and specific model of your SVX. Any Subaru parts department will look up the part number and also tell you if it is the same part as other models. They may work with you over the phone.

Yes the early subaru's all use the same front and rear axles
Fronts are easy to change. rears are not.
The only difference in the early style axles that use pin on inner joints are the outer joints with abs rings.

Replace axle but not cv joints


"What we have here is a failure to communicate". The axle comes with CV joints on the end. You will be buying the rebuilt assembly. Both axle and CV joints will refer to the same part in a front wheel drive application.

Major clicking when car is in a turn especially on the right. Is this bearings or cv joint


Sounds like you have a bad CV joint. The rubber boots on these joints have a tendency to crack letting the grease out and corrosive material in. It's time to replace the joint.

CV joint questions


well now,,,il tell you a storie,,,better sit down?
the cv joints are the joints in a drive train that for use of a better word "bend the drive shaft" so it dont brake when you turn a corner,,,ie:parking! inside the cv joint is held on the drive shaft be some splines in the drive shaft and a spring clip holds it all together there is an "inner bell" it has normaly 5 slots in it that have big "ball bearings" in them that slid around up and down these slots on the out side of the cv joint is the outer "bell" this also has slots that the ball bearings fit into so the drive trough the cv is compleat,,,when you turn the wheels the cv joints slids round on these ball bearings twisting round but the drive from the engine is still transmited to the road wheeles trough the cv
when this cv joint starts to were out the ball bearings are pitted and not ball shaped any more and the slots they run in are not smooth that to gets pitted what happens is the cv starts to "crack" under load,,,and vibrate when turning or being driven you drive down the road at 50 mph and the car feels like its driving over stones in the road its vidrating off the cv joint then when you turn the wheel on full lock to pull away you here a very big cracking or clicking sound, like,,,,,click click click, and the more power you put on the more they click very soon people start turning around and look at you? oh yes they here it to!
the vibration that comes off the cv will reck the transmission becouse of the wipping of the drive shafts,,,, to test your cv joints to see if there good or bad one's put the car on full lock and pull away,, if there is a cracking sound or a klicking sound there shot away and you need new ones fitted
now then,,,storie over,,, its time for sleepy sleeps

Cv joints/tranny


Hate to the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like one of the gears in the transmission is shot (namely the ring and pinion gear.) One thing to check and see is to look under the hood and look at where the CV joints enter the transmission. Have someone put it into gear while you look. See if the output shafts of the transmission is turning, but the inner CV joint is not.

Much as I hate to say it, you picked a bad car for a beginning driver. Parts are expensive for this car, and sometimes hard to come by.

Inner cv joints


inner cv joints are the joints on the inner half of the axle shaftswhere they go into the transmission. sometimes the easiest thing to do is replace the axle shafts
