proportioning valve

You can install an adjustable proportioning valve on the rear brake line just below the master cylinder.

front line

No. Most of your breaking power comes from the front. All the weight is over the front tires. The purpose of the proportioning valve is to keep the rear tires from locking up and skidding. When you install the adjustable proportioning valve. You will have to adjust it so the rear tires don't lock up.

lines

You can remove the stock valve. Run one line from master to existing tee in the front. Run short line to valve. Then a line to tee on rear differential. My preference is to use braided brake line. It is easy to work with. The racing type is cheap but not DOT approved but I use it anyway.
