Big brake discs proportioning valve

Hi all.
My 51 Chevy truck build is coming along. I put 14 camaro disc brakes all around. I have a Ford Explorer rear end in it. I read about pad bump from the floating axle moving in and out and pushes the calipers in.i bought a 2 lb. check valve from wilwood.
I may be overthinking this but if the rotor pushes one direction and pushes the pistons in on that side then wouldn’t the opposite pistons take up the displaced fluid?
I got a disc from proportioning valve thinking the valve will help apply the rears a little quicker and help with the pad bump. Also bought a wilwood adjustable proportioning valve since my truck is fairly light compared to a camaro.
Anyone have experience on this? Thanks jim

Use a disc/disc proportioning valve. Can be found at most every aftermarket brake place. I recently purchased a nice shiny unit from Inline Tube.
