Get rid of your ABS pump. Check the very end of my build thread to see what I did.

Because:

1.) I don't do hack jobs and
2.) Like I said in the thread, the original lines were corroded and I've already had two brake line blow outs.

The proportioning valve is adjustable. Lifting a vehicle will change the ideal front/rear proportioning. With adjustable valve you can tune the braking to your vehicle.

This is not a difficult job.
