Default is brake bleed order the same for abs and non abs?

as above... i have the fsm order of
Brake fluid replacement sequence; (A) Front
right (B) Rear left (C) Front left (D) Rear
right

This is for a car with abs and tcs... so is it the same for my car? i have the braking system from a 1999 wrx sti ra that has no abs. just a 4 port master cylinder and the distro block.
So do i just go ahead and bleed in the same order as the abs car?
thanks

ps have searched.. thats how i got the fsm info. thanks

Yes, bleeding sequence is the same between abs & non-abs cars.

With ABS, you may want to cylce the ABS motor a few times to get any trapped air out. Then rebleed the brakes.

How do you cycle the abs motor?? I just put new front left and right rotors, pads and calipers and tried to bleed but nothing came out of the front right. Yes the calipers are on the right side the bleeder valve is on top. I just canít seem to get any fluid out. Btw itís a 2000 Legacy Outback 2.5l w/ABS. Also the abs light has been on for a while now not sure why thou. PLEASE HELP NEED CAR FOR WORK TM AT 5:30am lol

You shouldn't need to cycle the ABS pump just to bleed a caliper.
If you wanted to do a full fluid flush, some scanners can do it, good shop scanners can do it, crude is to go on a wet road, snow, gravel and hit the brakes hard.
But, as stated, just bleeding a,caliper shouldn't need to cycle the pump.

Great point. I have not had that issue, but similar ones that are easy to just skip over.
Crappy short term alternative is to bleed through the banjo bolt.
