if bent and hanging /disconnected someone had and accident order the replacement parts and replace tan either an alignment shop to check that repair is safe and an alignment can be done but preferred method or repair would be a body shop for repair
The shift solenoids are mounted to the valve body which is behind the side cover of the transmission. Usually you have to lower the trans to remove the side cover, which envolves lowering the subframe. If you drop the subframe the steering rack must be disconnected and the engine must be held from above because most of the motor/trans mounts are on the subframe
CHEAPER BUY WHOLE CAR AT SALVAGE YARD USE THE SUBFRAME.SUBFRAME CAN BE WELDED AND REPLACE IN SECTIONS BUT YOU WILL HAVE TIRE ALIGNMENT PROBLEMS.YOU CAN CALL AROUND GET A PRICE CHECK.YOU GOING TO BE OUT OF $1000.00 OR MORE. BECAUSE WHOLE ENGINE AND TRANSAXLE DRIVE TRAIN HAS TO BE REMOVE OFF SUBFRAME BEFORE REPLACING IT.
In my experience as an alignment tech at Sears Roebuck & Co., I found that angles can most definitely be changed by hitting a curb or getting into a car accident.
Looking at it with the naked eye doesn't always show how the parts were bent.
If the tires are wearing on the outside, then the camber and possible toe was affected by the accident.
Have the car aligned at a reputable shop like Sears Auto Center or Firestone or Goodyear, and you'll get the same answer.
Ask for a printout of the angles before and after the repair service has been performed.
If the lower control arm was bent, then have it replaced, or have the angles adjusted. A good alignment shop will replace the bent parts, and adjust the adjustable angles for you to bring it back to factory specifications.
A Subaru Legacy GT would be a unibody car, so a body shop that specializes in unibody collision can be a good place to go as well. They are used to rebuilding wrecks from the ground up in order to bring the entire car back to specifications.
One may have to bounce between the body shop and if they don't have the alignment machines, a name brand company like Sears or Firestone or Goodyear that has the computerized alignment machine for doing the final angle adjustments.
1. subframe mounts. 2. subframe bolts or nut welded to body broken 3. Body rotted out. Ford has a bulliten and a retrofit kit to fix this issue.Its a pain in the *** you need to pull up the carpet and drill holes and stuff, I did one way back in the day. Took like 2-3 hours but fixed it. I live in minnesota the road salt eats cars up something fierce!!
