    That there is a load-sensitive proportioning valve for the rear brakes ... depending on how loaded the bed is it reduces the rear brakes some.

    I've never seen one in person as they're often removed from trucks. You won't be towing with a lifted truck, or at least, recalibrating the thing -- assuming it works -- is beyond the ken of mere mortals.

    Yank it, replumb around it.
