    I like this a lot i can get the master for 75 dollars. I probably would just get the adjustable valve so I can really dial it In.

    I think you need to add a PV either way. The front calipers and lines sizes are still different in your truck versus the one the axle and MS are from.

    You may need one - but you still have to either gut that factory combo valve or get one of the ones that's already gutted.

    Couldn't I just replace it with a adjustable One? By combo valve you mean prop valve right? Just so we are on the same page.

    There's a good pic in there - you really want to gut the front and back halves of that. The front has a slight delay mechanism in it also.. Or just replace w/ an empty one... Mine wouldn't come apart after all these years. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/sum-760185

    Inline tube makes a rear disc proportioning valve. It's kinda spendy. I picked up one, no comment on how it works yet. But it must be good, my blazer hasn't moved in over a year haha!

    Thanks for the links guys, I briefly searched and tried to do it cheap... Looks like I will be gutting it first and then if needed I'll buy the Willwood valve. Or I will just buy it anyway when I do new pads and rotors.

    With blazer bash coming around the corner I made a list of everything I want to have done... I estimated about $2800 in hard cash... :doah:

    How many of us run the stock system with fine results.

    Not sure why you are even worried about a prop valve, kind of confused ? mine works fine and it is the stock system with rear disc added.

    It nose dives on the brakes, weird feel the rear doesn't have much. I would rather dial it in then feel ok about it. Safety is a big concern of mine.


    Put about 100 miles on it tonight. I suddenly feel like I need more power but content with it. I have way to much fun hot rodding it around. 300hp to the ground doesn't seem like a lot but it moves... I hear it is though?

    Been thinking about the interior a lot lately. I Feel the factory dash doesn't have what I need. I want to add multiple 7+ inch displays and have switches and buttons available...

    I have thought about the diy4x dash but it doesn't have what I want or the look.

    What I have come up with is the factory dash along with something like this. http://www.dirtskum.bigcartel.com/product/99-07-silverado-center-console
    Along with two suspension seats, I wanted to keep the bench for hauling my nieces and nephews along but the truck is headed to where a cage and harness is going to be needed....
