I didnt take off the brakes when I did mine, just used a punch to knock out the axle from the hub. Pretty much did it this way:

I don't do it this way...

I take the wheel off, then unbolt the sway bar, the wishbone from the chassis and out it comes, very easy !

Same for the rear, just take the long bolt out (the one that holds the 2 lateral links), and you don't even need to remove the sway bar !

Does the SG Forester have the pin at the gearbox end that you need to knock out to remove the shaft?

Nope. You use a large pry bar and pop it out. Be aware that when you do this most of your gearbox oil will come out. It might be a better idea to drain iy first.

Then removr the two strut bolts, turn the hub to the side and pull it out of the hub first then out of the gearbox.

I can usually get the job done in around 20mins to grt in or out.
If you get stuck send me a message.

Taza, dont remove the strut bolts as that removes your camber setting, requiring a wheel alignment. Just pop out the ball joint from the hub (remove the bolt then open the housing with a screwdriver) then swing the whole strut out & the shaft comes out of the gearbox. First loosen the axle in the hub end by tapping with a hammer.

Just mark the bolts before you remove. Put back in same location. I prefer to take out strut bolts than bash out ball joints.

It's easier to remove the 14mm grub screw that holds the ball joint into the hub than remove the strut bolts i find.
