    When looking for a new proportioning valve for my K30, parts store cost was around $90, I dont know how much it is for an S10

    There are other options when doind it to, you could run it split front and rear with no valve, or with one of those dialy prop. valves, but that has the risk of something or the other getting double broke and you losing brakes... I'm too lazy to look up specifics. Anyway, I twisted a lot of my hard lines apart when putting in my 60, and I got mostly junk parts from CK5 members (it's like a bloody shopping mall here) It's all together and nice, but I haven't finished the truck so who knows

    Anyway my bet is expensive, look at parts stores

    Stock part is called a combo valve as it does two things. There is the rear proportioning valve in it. It also has the shuttle pin switch to turn on the brake warning light if part of the system fails.

    If you don't mind loosing the warning light switch you can use one of the dial adjustable valves from Summit or similar. I think they're btwn $40 and $60 each.

    Using an adjustable p-valve will allow you to dial in the brake balance of a modified truck. The p-valve for the S-10 would be closer to correct than the one for a K5.
