Well, Subie gals way is the only way to do it....cutting the bracket, bending it just enough to get the hose out. At least thats the only way that I've come across to not mess with bleeding the brakes.

Good luck,

I agree with the cutting/bending technique (that's what I did...a dremel works wonders in these situations). Otherwise, there really is no safe way to do it (you COULD try vice gripping the lines really tight to stop them from leaking, but, you would still have to get any air out of the lines later).

Cutting the brackets is not that bad. Invest in a dremel and it's not hard at all. Just be carful not to CUT the lines when cutting the bracket.

What are you doing with your old set? are they in good condition? If so I would be interested in buying them if they don't have to many miles on them. I have a 91 Legacy and was looking to get new springs/struts because mine have seen better days.
