Ball joint splitters are really only useful when you're not reusing the ball joint. They tend to damage the rubber boot.
Depends on the ball joint puller mine is NOT one of the hammer in ones it is a proper puller designed for ball joints,but then most of the ball joints i work on a rather larger than your average

im guessing that i know which one that is?
I'm a fussy bugger, unless it's brand name or original I won't touch it after being stung a few times (even got a pair of ball joints that were both mismatched and too tall, both as 'genuine replacements' from a certain yellow parts supplier )

Two points of failure have already been mentioned - kidney plate and the rear main seal - are there any other common points of oil seal failure I should be looking at, possibly at the front?

What exactly is needed / what parts should I be looking at getting? I know Subaru would be best, but are 3rd party brands okay as well?

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.
<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!
<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!

Wash world is great for that ;)Take a couple ramps and can of degreaser, Sorted
Give it a good wash down before pulling the sump off to confirm where the leak is coming from.

I know it's not the perfect situation, but I can't be bothered with it any more. I'll remove and re-seal the sump, but if it's not that, then buggered if I know.
Next cam belt change I'll pull the engine out and sort it out then
