    I ran across a website last year that would customize the factory PV for disc brakes. Now I can't seem to find it. I'd prefer to go this route instead of with the Wilwood PV. Does anyone know what this site is?

    Inline Tube makes a disk-disk proportioning valve, its about the same price as the stocker disk-drum valve

    I actually bid on a Wilwood but I doubt it will last. Where did you mount yours at? Will the knob turn after time or is there a lock?

    Under the steering colum. Picture in that link I posted. Doesn't turn unless you adjust it. Nice and snug. Much higher quality peice then I was expecting for $50. It's race car quality stuff.

    Adjustable PV costs $50, need two lines for about $60 total if you can find somebody local to buy the Willwood from.

    Thanks, I'll check into that, the rest of my braking system is one ton so might as well go with a 1 ton PV.

    Summitt doesn't charge shipping, or did they change that?
