    I have a brake fluid leak that seems to be coming from the proportioning valve, it looks like the only way to get at it is to remove the driver side inner fender well liner, has anyone else had this problem if so any advice would be appreciated

    I've changed a couple before
    Not sure if you can get new
    I'd recommend soaking the fittings with kroil/pb blaster the day before
    I've never tried to repair one before but they do have o rings in them maybe replace them.

    Most likely just need to change the o-rings.

    That would be great, coil spring conversion kit is supposed to be here the 27th. Probably easier to get at proportioning valve at same time
