I have been looking at the weight transfer issue, axle weight ratings and the issue of brake bias has emerged.
The typical over the highway truck uses the rear trailer brakes for a lot of the braking power, however since hauling a trailer is the last thing I am doing, the brake bias shifts to the steering wheels.
Anyone know where I can find a different brake bias valve?

.....charge both the yellow and red brake valves when you start off...that will equalize braking as much as possible with out going nuts on new stuff that really isn't that necessary....I never even worried about that issue since I figured out the procedure....anti-lock will be more of a problem if you convert and drop an axle...I have all the axles in place and it works for me very well....should I have unequal brake wear I might do something about it....but I have all new brakes/drums/kits so they will outlive me......geofkaye

well that is just too easy, so much for me over designing something I don't have to.
thanks
