Help, broke the left rear DOJ

Discussion in 'Subaru Sambar' started by Georgia mountain man, Apr 16, 2019.

  1. Well I went and broke the inside CV joint on my 92 Sambar KS4. Can anyone out there explain how to remove it from the Transmission/transfer case? It has the diff lock if that matters. Thanks

    double check, but as far as i can remember its the same as the front CV axles where the diff side has a pin you need to drive out with a punch and hammer then you can remove the axle from the diff, then just unbolt/hammer out of the drum
     
  3. I cleaned all the road grime off of the DOJ I can't locate a spring pin on the DOJ. Is it possible that being a dump truck it has a different DOJ?

    hmm should be the same axle, if theres no pin it might just pop out of the transmission once you undo the axle bolt from the drum hub and bang it out, if i get time tomorrow night i'll see if mine has a pin
     
  5. Turns out the truck is an AG version. the transmission and Axel's are different from the street models. I did manage to find a company near Atlanta, GA that can rebuild these Axel's.

    It really depends on the truck, as 1992 was a transitional year.

    1990-some 1992s have roll pins.
    Some 1992s-1999 have snap rings.

    And, to make it worse.. you cant just tell from the month, it really depended on the model as to when they switched over. My 1992 KS4 w/Diff Lock has roll pins, but I have seen a 1992 KS4 that was made a month earlier than mine that had snap rings. As such, there are a BUNCH of different CVs for the 1992 model year.

    What do you mean by "AG" version? I am not familiar with that term.

    Ah, okay.. that is called the "JA" trim or model, for the JA (Japan Agriculture) Group

    My original point still stands, there are both versions for 1992 KS4 JA models, it just depends on what version of the transmission actually ended up in the truck. The only real reliable way to determine is to either physically look for the roll pins, or to look up the VIN in the official Subaru parts tool.

    What a coincidence. I broke mine as well. I wonder if it has anything to do with the lift kit we installed? Do you mind sharing that place that rebuilds them?

    Apparently the JA Sambars have different axles than the standard model. I wound up removing the rear lift and haven't had any more problems. C.B Source is great. Just tell them what you have and they can fix it. Usually 1 day turn around. Ron

    Well I have removed the boot and looked everywhere and I haven't been able to find a pin or a snap ring holding the doj to the diff.... Does anyone have a picture of where to look?

    Check out this video that 4nines posted in the Sambar forum. It shows him taking out the axel when he replaced the axel boot. It may help you. It’s the front axel, not sure if the rear is the same.

    Good luck.

    Thanks, that helps. That would be great if it just pries out.

    just the pin holding the front CV axles in, just changed one of mine. couple hits on the pin with a punch/hammer and the axle slid right out of the front diff

    Well it's a no go. There is no pin, no circlip and I've pried as hard as I feel comfortable with no results. I don't think I need to remove it anyway if I can find a replacement tripod joint.

    That's super weird yours doesn't have a roll pin, I'm going to be doing my brakes later today I can take a picture of my pin to make sure

    so for sure you dont have this pinhole? ive never seen a 1990-1998 KS4 without this

    this is where the pin goes on through the front diff

    this is what the pin looks like, i ordered some new ones from Subaru. just whack it with a flat-end punch and hammer, once its out theres nothing else holding the CV axle to the front diff, just the nut to the front spindle

    I do not have a hole on mine on either side of the rear diff. I haven't checked the front.
