redoing my brake setup, need advice

The calipers are 80s camaro, the pedal ratio is actually 4.85/1, MC bore is 1'', it is a chrome smooth after market type, rear axle is a 10 bolt 80s so not sure what size the cylinders are. Pedal rod travels 1'' maybe bit more if really pushed.
The brakes seem fine while driving, slow the car without much pedal force.When coming to a stop, the car doesn't want to stop fast. I just took the car out on gravel and front brakes will lock, but I have to really stand on the pedal. So what will make this better? I'm going to put residue valves in the rear lines. Can the combination valve be out of sink?
