98 Chevy Suburban Brake Bleeding

I removed the ABS system from my 98 Suburban. I installed a proportioning valve from a 91 chevy pick-up. I bled the brakes, but, they are terrible.
My son suggested that I need to push the valve on the end of the proportioning valve. One side for front, the other side for rear. My question is: IS THIS TRUE?

if you have to take a line loose to push the valve then the valve you bought is probably bad and should be replaced, and yes i have gotten new valves to have them be bad already lol it sucks but it does happen. Did you remember to plug the sensor back in on the top of the valve between the inlet lines? Describe the type of "horrible" the brakes are....not stopping....shuddering when stopping....locking up...need some more info please

When I said horrible - - I meant they would stop, but, not as good as they should. I have since bench bled the master cylinder and gravity bled the system and brakes are working fine.

Yes I reconnected the wire back to the abs unit and the brake light does work.
