Was the driver's front wheel the one your replaced the line on?

Also, you don't need to cycle the abs system if you didn't get any air in it. Sure, it won't hurt, but it's also not necessary in most situations. If you never let any air get into the master cylinder, it is highly unlikely that any air got into the abs module.

I tried vacuum bleeding after I replaced all 4 of my brake lines and it sucked. I would highly recommend using a 1 man bleeder such as this one:

Then you want to follow the correct bleeding procedure which should be listed in the factory service manual or in your owner's manual. For most Subarus, it goes: FR, BL, FL, BR.
