What is the proper order to bleed the brakes on my 2000 legacy? I have a stock ABS brake system.

Also, how much brake fluid will it take to bleed out the whole system?

Smile bleeding brakes

i had to bleed my stock abs brakes on my 95 when i lowered it because i had to take off the brake lines to pull the struts out. i didn't follow any particular order when i did it; i think we may have done the left front first, then right front, and then moved to the rear. as far as how much brake fluid you'll need, i couldn't tell you. i don't think it's that much, i think when we refilled it after we used 1 container. hope this helps.

Wrong. I have installed 18 struts on subarus (dont ask about the odd number) and never opened the lines. Use a hacksaw to open the brackets. Bend it out of the way. Do the same on installation.

I believe there is a proper order when flushing the system to minimize contaminating new fluid with old fluid. Normally it is recommended to start with the furthest wheel from the master cylinder first and get closer and closer. But with ABS I think it is different. For a WRX it is RF, LR, RR, RF or something like that. I imagine the Legacy is has a similar brake system.

I need to find out what the proper order is for the Legacy
