The Subaru driveshaft transfers the power from the transmission to the rear wheel on the Subaru. If the driveshaft is damaged, it will not properly function and may cause damage to your transmission and engine. The driveshaft is held in place by a few bolts. You can complete this job in about an hour. All you need is a set of ramp lifts, a drain pan and a ratchet set.
