    Well, since my driver's rear wheel bearing is going bad I went to Crazy Rays pick and pull today with @Rubie_25GT, @kcowles, @SelfishBlue, and a couple other friends. @WPEC spotted my wagon in the parking lot there. I got a spindle/knuckle/hub set up off a 99 sedan that had 118,000 miles on. Under the hood it said the timing belt had been replaced at 50,000 miles in March of 2010. Something @Dead91silvia may not believe is the car was relatively rust free. The whole knuckle cost me $17 vs $300-500 it would have cost at my friend's shop to replace the wheel bearing. I know I took a risk, but to me its worth it since my wagon has 178,xxx miles.

    The down side was I broke a breaker bar and a Husky ratchet today. At least the ratchet has a lifetime warranty. My brother said to take it back to Home Depot with the rest of the set and they will replace the whole thing.

    Rear diff and cv axles are both new within the last year or so. I am going to change the diff oil and see what happens. Honestly, to me it sounds really similar to the sound the old rear diff made when it went bad.

    On a side note, I ordered tires for the wagon. Soon it won't be on crappy dry rotting snow tires.

    New tires arrived today. I got the General Tires ALTIMAX RT43 after speaking with @Lancaster6 back at the SLI MD in the spring. He said they not really great anything, but good at everything. That is exactly what I need for this car. I set up an appointment to have them mounted and balanced using a road force machine and get an alignment this weekend.

    As far as the noise goes, I think its the rear diff again. I think the dry rotted snow tires have uneven wear and are causing the diff to wear out. I could be completely wrong though. A friend of mine suggested changing the gear oil in the diff so I have some Motul 300 ready to go in. That will happen along with an oil change after mounting the new tires this weekend.

    New tires are on. They are nice and smooth. Much less road noise and they are much more responsive than the old snow tires. I also changed the gear oil in the rear diff. My first thought when looking at the old oil was "WOW MUCH FLAKE!" Looks like I may be replacing it AGAIN. Its making the same noise the old one did when it was on its way out. I guess this time I will actually find a rear LSD.

    A picture I could not resist this morning. The day before cars and coffee in the previous post the wagon got some "detail" work done. It was hit with Griot's Garage Complete Compound then Turtle wax. I have to say I am impressed with that combo.

    So the nice 6 month old remaned front calipers maybe not working properly. The left front seems to be making considerably more brake dust than the right front.

    I AM SO DONE WITH THIS CAR.

    So I drove the wagon to work today. I get out and there is a big time burning smell. I couldn't find anything obvious. I went back outside about an hour later and found the issue. The left front caliper was still warm to the touch while the right front and rears were cool. Looks like the caliper needs to be rebuilt/replaced. It gives me an excuse to get rid of the StopTech pads too. They are good pads, but too dusty for what I want/need and cause brake judder if you don't drive hard all the time.

    Possible sliding pin(s) got stuck and all you need is to lube them.

    That is the plan. Then go from there. I may pick up some pads just in case as well. My concern is I need to drive the car for about a 1.5 hour round trip tonight.

    Today was fun. I went to the junkyard with @Rubie_25GT, @kcowles, and a couple other friends. I scored a rear LSD from an 01 Outback H6. We then took my rear diff off my wagon to find out the 01 H6 rear diff has a different number of splines inside the diff vs the axles on the 2nd gen. Its this way despite the internet telling both the H6 Outback and my car having a 4.11 final drive. We then had to put my diff back in and put the car back together. The fun doesn't end there.

    Last thing to do was put the exhaust back on. When I went to tighten the spring bolt back down on the cat (yes my cat back is one long piece) the flange on the cat was so rusted it fell off. We got it rigged back on with no leaks using a U-bolt clamp and a clamp flange thing like this:

    Car is fixed. Issue and solution were so simple it made my brain hurt. It was something I had looked at before and thought "it can't be that." Even my friend who owns the shop I took it to thought the issue would be serious when he heard the noise. It turns out the muffler and a piece of sheet metal wanted to occupy the same area. We grabbed a pry bar and bent the sheet metal out of the way.

    Changed the low beams out for Osram Nightbreaker Unlimiteds. I have the same in the lows and fogs on the 3.0R. I also re-aimed the Hella 500s down a bit to be more even with the high beams. In the process I managed to scratch the fender. So much for that "pristine" paint......

    Well that was short lived. One of the bulbs exploded this morning and the glass is stuck in the socket. This car keeps finding new and interesting ways to piss me off.

    I bought this car with around 55,000 miles on it 11 years ago. It has just over 180,000 miles on it now and today was the first time I had to add oil between oil changes. I consider that a win.

    I found a small rust spot starting near the center of the driver's door today. Fun times.

    Just got done waxing the wagon. One pass with Mother's Carnauba Cleaner Wax then a pass with Griot's Garage 3 in 1 Wax. I am impressed with the results seeing as the wagon was not waxed since some time last fall.

    Nah, I will be driving the 3.0R.

    I should also add the annoying exhaust leak was fixed over the weekend too.
