Hey folks! I've finally done the drum to disc conversion on my fielder and Im interested in sending more pressure to the rear. *alot of folks in the field said I dont need a proportioning valve swap. Even the guy I bought the conversion from said he wont sell me something I dont need (proportioning valve). Just need some clarification here guys. Thanks in advance.

The idea of braking pressure to the rear wheels in a vehicle like a Fielder is not so much in stopping power, as it is in control. The front brakes do the most work in stopping, while the rear provides control in keeping the car in a straight line. If the back is holding too much, that will be lost. Wet roads will be a challenge.
This is noticeable with cars equipped with all wheel discs. The front is larger than the rear, and the rate of wear is more pronounced at the front.
Peace.
RR.

Well from my understanding of things... u will need the proportioning valve from the vehicle those brakes came from. I have done this in the past and i realised that without changing the valve u have much less stopping power. Discs require a higher fluid pressure as they arent as efficent at stopping as drums, however they are more efficent in the cooling hence why most performance track cars use them. Just my 2c

Thanks man. People say since its a wagon it already has great rear pressure....... makes sense what you're saying though.
