    Well I think I have found my course of action.

    Called my local subi tuner (the same one that tuned my car and I buy parts from), for a parts quote (since he deals with the dealership he gets and passes along a discount, plus he stocks a lot of parts). The parts were $30 but I still need pliers $50, or he said he'd replace it for $150, today. Done.

    FWIW he said the pass side goes first because of the exhaust heat, and that he replaces the pass side inner 2 to 1 to drivers side inner.

    I believe this fully.

    Well ended up getting both the drivers and passenger side inner boots replaced. Ran me $239 after taxes. I'm glad I took it to my local subi tuner, the pass side axle wouldn't come out of the hub. They new how to disassemble the axle in place and replace the boot anyways, I would have been there pissed and pounding on it forever.

    My theory has to do with sprinklers hitting the passenger side when the car is parked, and more water on the right side of the road with the car is moving. You really missed out on the pounding and swearing bit, it was exhilarating, like chicken soup for the soul. The smell of PB Blaster, the metallic clanking, the yelling...

    Oh I just missed out this time. I have been there a couple times on other cars. If I have to replace the clutch this year, I'll be dealing with it then. Interesting to note, my Subi shop recommends the exedy clutch kit.

    Got an email response from MWE

    I sent an email yesterday before I decided to have the boots done locally, thought I'd post it for future search reference. 2005-2009 axles are $195 each plus $35 shipping for one $55 shipping for two. He said there was currently no core charge on these axles.

    With no core charge those are a safe bet, since the owner can keep the original axle and just rebuild that if for some reason the MWE isn't as good as it's said to be -- but I have no doubt they're good, the people recommending them have been reputable on the sites.

    $195 - is that a typo? Sheesh, I'm glad the older ones are well less than half that!
