ok so that is how my driver side is....so i guess i have to go get a new passenger side rotor.....downey did u have to get a new proportional valve? how does ur rear brakes work?
you need a passenger caliper. dude do yourself a favor and go any other passenger side brake hose. then you can use your stock ranger t block and just shorten the hard lines. and your brake hose isnt as close to the tires and is in the stock location. the passenger caliper is a driver side like you said. get a passenger and it will bleed great. i didnt get a new proportional valve. there is no need my truck stops a hell of alot faster with the 4 wheel disc and t he drums ever would.
ya i was thinking about using the ranger block and doing what u said...but this worked out fine and i have more slack in my line a full drop that i did with the ranger line...also i went to the JY today and he let me switch out the crappy calipers that came on the axle when i bought it on craigslist for some nice ones of an 01 expo with 30,000 miles...i love having hookups there...so far i got the u bolts and top plate of an f-150 for free, the calipers, brake lines, and the ebrake cable all for 5 bucks...so i got the new calipers on and hooked up and bleed. now when i hit the brake petal it stops me very fast and works good...but i still cant get it to lock up at all. also i went to a gravel road and only the fronts locked up...then i did a brake stand and i could press on the brakes as hard as i could and i didnt notice a difference in the rear tires spinning...so for some reason my rear brakes arent working. could that be the prop valve? my petal is nice a firm like it should be but something is not right...what do u think it could be?

Ummm, you have rear ABS. It aint' suppose to lock up. why do you think your **** needs to lock up to work perfectly? Did you notice a decrease in stopping distance??? that is what matters.....wut are you thinking?....?
on my moms jimmy when the abs kicks in it vibrates the petal and makes a wierd noise....my truck has never done that so i assumed that the abs didnt work...and i was flexing on a hill to test out the limited slip and once one tire got off the ground i tried pressing the brakes to even out the resistance and see it i could get it to go further up the hill and when i pushed the brakes the rear tire that was spinning didnt even show down...that means that something is not right.
i should still get some skidding i would think....what about this...what is the problem here to u think?

o...well usually u would use the ebrake to do it for the rears...but since i only have one side hooked up right now it didnt work for the way i was going...(the side that worked was the tire on the ground)....but ya the fact that the rears didnt do any thing has left me confused...i was thinking that since the pads and rotors havent been used in probably a year or to that mite have somthing to do with it but idk...
well i got my shock mounts welded on today....i decided to just cut the old ones off the 7.5 axle....welding upside down sux!!!! all my beads kept dripping down...kinda got the hang of it when i was on the last part....it seems i can not weld when i start and by the time im done i can weld good again...its gay...lol....now all i have to do is figure out something to do about my passenger side ebrake and then im done...
