    Pretty much, but you don't have to take the banjo bolts off the brake lines or cut/bend anything. Unlike the brake line mounts shown in the threads you posted, the WRX uses clips to hold the brake lines in place. Just put a flat head against the lip of the clip and tap it off.

    You also need a really big breaker bar. I had a 24 inch 1/2" drive bar and I had to stand on it to break the strut bolts.
