2001 XJ brake question

Does the '01 Cherokee 4.0 two wheel drive have a proportioning valve in the break system? I have an issue where the pressure isn't being applied to all four wheels in a uniform matter. The passenger front hits first and it feels like the Jeep is being spun around to the left. The passenger rear locks up also. I just did the calipers, rotors and rubber lines.

Any ideas, thanks.

there's a proportioning valve under the hood on the MC.

Separate.
The front is suppose to lock up first. Both fronts.
Make sure you have the right calipers. The bleeders will be on top.
If they are not, either you put them on wrong or the parts store gave you two for the same side.
