The dis-assembling of the rear has begun.

Calipers, rotors and dust shields removed. Sway bar's completely apart, just gotta snake it outta there. I ran outta time and got tired cause the previous owner left me with, hopefully, the last surprise. The bolts that hold the swaybar-to-frame brackets are messed up. On the driver's side, one of em broke off and stuck in the frame. On the driver's side, one bolt came out, but was incredibly hard to turn right til the bitter end. I suspect they were carelessly mashed in there with an air gun and cross-threaded. I'll take some pics next time.

Also, why did Subaru tack weld the rear dust shields onto the hubs? Couldn't bolt them on like the front?
