    I just purchased a 86 Sub K2500 and I want to install a lift(who doesn't?).My problem is it has a height sensitive brake proportioning valve that leaks by the way.Not only does it leak but if I lift the truck it would adversely effect this valve.Can I remove it?Has anyone else removed theirs?What is the best way to do it?As I understand it, it was not on all models and was intended for towing applications.I do tow a 24' trailer(camper) but with the massive brakes already present on this truck I don't believe it needs any help.

    Yes you can remove it without having any problems. Just remove the lever as I recall.

    It's there to sense load and change rear brake apply dependent on weight.
