    I was looking on ORU's website and noticed they include a proportioning (sp?) valve, has anyone used one or is just the regular lines ok? thanks chris

    I think every case varies to whether you think you need or want to run it.

    IMO, ORU offers it as part of the kit so they can rape you for more $$$.

    BTW, how do you like their rear disc kit with the e-brake option for $1500? /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif Talk about an a$$ reaming!! /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    I have done several of these swaps- (including a long bed truck) and have yet to have the need for a proportioning valve.

    i bought some brackets from a guy in the forums i cant remember his screen name,but i got the brackets for 2 pair for $100.i did not use e-brakes so i got all the parts i needed to complete the job for just under $200 i know a e-brake set up runs alot more but ORU is a rip off.i did not used a proportioning valve.when i had them power bled a guy at the garage said i could use one for the back. to get more fluid to the back.i didn't bother with it and the whole set up brings 42's to a halt in a hurry
