No Comment LMAO :rotfl:

This is it for me. Part of swapping so many vehicles had alot to do with family and having room for everybody which I achieved when I purchased the Durango. Not to mention I'm sick and tired of investing so much in a vehicle just to sell it and start all over.

I did some reading and found a write up on a cheap way to fix the proportioning valve to give more pressure to the rear brakes. It took me about 15 minutes to do and it works great! Just don't bleed the brakes at the front cap like he said in the write up or it will blow the o-ring out....ask me how I know :punchballs: Here is the link if anyone is interested.

This modification would work great for those of you that have went to rear disc or bigger 1 ton drum brakes but never added an adjustable proportioning valve. :2cents:

Nice. That's a late model, right?

Yep. It's from an 89 Suburban. I believe that's the cut off for late model.

I looked at it and wished I had my new carburetor so I could drive it.
Build underway!
