Rear brake LOAD SENSING VALVE.

Matt, be careful here. The valve opens up as more weight is put over the
back axle. You may have noticed the pivoting link between the axle and
the valve. If you adjust it you run the risk of rear wheel lock up when
running unladen. Very entertaining in a 2+ ton vehicle ! I would be
checking that it is adjusted correctly at present and that the pivot
points are free. It may be partially siezed.
As stated by others - fitment of a lift kit requires adjustment. This
is covered in the LCOOL technical site and might also be discussed in
the SLEE site.
Hope your snowballs are still frozen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gareth Jones.

Hi Matt,
You can adjust the rear break balancing valve using two pressure
gauges (by rotating the valve and/or bending the control arm) . The
procedure is described in detail in the FSM.
