    Thanks for the information, I didn't know that about the dual stage booster. I have some speedbleeders, but I also have a friend that helps me do the bleeding. I'm not looking for a decrease in stopping distance over stock or anything, i'm just looking to get my brakes back to stock condition, will a single stage booster have any effect on this or is it just a "pedal feel" mod?
    I'm trying to help. If you are 100% positive you have absolutely no air or no leaks in the system, replace the master.

    If you know how to bleed brakes, you will be 100% sure. If you don't, try doing it correctly.

    This might be the problem.. traditionally you start farthest away and work your way closer to the master cyl. RR, LR, RF, LF

    Okay, thanks. I'm sure there's no air and I'm sure I have no leaks. So I'll go track down a new mc.

    ^ good info, this is why I mentioned "traditionally" ..

    I had a feeling with all the extra abs parts and plumbing that the order might be different. Either way I'd say the op should have the car power bled or at very least run through the bleeding procedure a few times with a couple hours of settle in between.

    If you have all the air out, its the master cylinder.

    I like my motive power bleeder, but also have a mighty vac for 1 person operation.

    The motive power bleeder is simple fast and very effective.

    Hi i dont know if this will help i have a 2002 wrx wagon not quite the same problem but if i brake hard and catch a bump i loose my brakes so i spoke to a specialist in bristol and they recomend you check the bearings as if there's any play it can confuse the abs.

    I have had this issue before come up in some honda accords I have worked on. Are you positive that you dont have an internal leak in the ABS system or is the abs system completely seperate from the braking system in a subaru? A lot of times the modulator in the abs system starts to consume brake fluid causing air pockets in the system and it feels good sometimes after bleeding then it quickly turns to poop.
