Skeen Posted August 23, 2017 Share Posted August 23, 2017 Hoping someone can shed some light on this. I'm looking to replace both front axles on my '99 Legacy L 30th Anniversary 2.2L. When I go to look up the axles either online or at AutoZone/Other Auto parts stores, it shows the front axles having a female inner housing. The 4AT in my car does not have male splines coming out of the trans, and the current axles (4 torn boots) are male on both housings. I checked the transmission model number against the car's silver VIN plate up by the driver side mirror. They Match. I have looked a couple years in either direction online, and the axles listed seem to be the same. The only other Legacy I've come across that has male/male axles is my 4th Gen Sedan. This car has some weird factory parts on it which have caused issues like this in the past. For example, it is a California Emission Spec Model and uses a 2000+ model year air filter. (Also has 90% of the 2000+ Legacy air intake piping) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
