Replace your proportioning valve with either an aftermarket unit or on from a 4 wheel disc equiped vehicle.Drum brake type valves limit rear flow and pressure due to the fact the drum brakes are self energizing and if pressure was equal to the front they would lock very quickly compared to the fronts.Had the same problem when converting my malibu to 4 whell disc.
