Which car repair is easier?

    Both our vehicles are broke.
    I need to fix one of them asap.
    I'll either be replacing the power steering pump on my 2009 Subaru Legacy or I'll be replacing the cv axle on a 2009 Dodge Caliber.
    Shops are all backed up and I have to get one of these vehicles back on the road.
    Money isn't important. Time is...
    Which one is going to be easier for me to do?

    If money isn't important call Enterprise (they bring the car to you) and rent a car for a few days giving you time to evaluate which repair is easier.

    I'm leaning toward the Subaru's power steering pump.
    Mainly because I don't much feel like laying on the ground after having spent 3 days moving.

    Im not picking on anyone you fucking retard. Its called being realistic. Apparently you cant comprehend the difference between picking on someone and giving advice.

    Also he went from living paycheck to paycheck to supposedly buying a house in an very short amount of time. Unless this woman is on some type of assistance, got an inheritance, or 0 down loan then i am skeptical

    are you sure that bushing needs to be set differently? why does it need to be different, cause the new pump doesn't mount the same or something? asking cause ive gone on some reatarded dyslexic missions on stuff like that before and wasted a lot of time messing with something i was just looking at wrong and didn't need to mess with in the first place.

    is this what you need to do, and how you already tried?

    use a bigger socket as a cup to 'catch' da bushing, and a smaller one to push. letter soak with peepee blaster or WD, give it a lil heat if you can

    is it something you could accomplish with adding a washer to space off the bushing farther?

    I was going to suggest the same thing c-clamp and a socket or a long punch and a hammer.
    Propane torch would also help.
    The problem is always shitty steel and aluminum bind up on a molecular level pisses me off.

    Outside of changing a waterpump or even a serpentine belt or a manifold gasket but not a head gasket, too much work I never wrench on cars much.

    And today with computers and all, and little room for hands, shit just not worth smashing your knuckles

    IS your house referred as a railcar ranch?
