    I have an 87 K20 350TBI and I am putting rear discs on it soon, and I was wondering would I be able to find a rear ABS system off of a 88-90 suburban and put it on my truck? Would I have to mess with the computer, or bypass it, or just get a adjustable proportioning valve and deal with it?
    Thanks, Tim

    the brains for my 'rear-abs' on my 91 sub are (i beleive) in the brake system itself (control box), the plumbing nightmare under master cyl, and sensor in tranny(700)/case. Nothing on rear axle. Not sure i'd mess with adding it in.
