Post anyone done the TSB proportioning valve?? 
I was able to find this, but it never mentions tahoe. Just suburban.
If anyone's done this..is it worth the $125.00 part... and this IS the 80/20 update correct?
Where's the proportioning valve go - i heard it was in the ABS unit.
or is it just somewhere south of the MC.
all info appreciated.
Thanks.

This bulletin is being revised to update information in the Models Section
and Correction Information. Please discard Corporate
Bulletin Number 99-05-24-001 (Section 5 -- Brakes).
Condition
Some owners may comment about the vehicle leading or pulling to either side
while applying the brakes, and premature front
brake wear, especially vehicles that have been used to tow a heavy load.
Cause
The condition may be caused by wearing of the front brake material.
Improvements to the above conditions can be gained
through brake material modifications. On the Suburban models, the best
performance from this new brake material can be
achieved with replacing the brake combination valve.
Correction
Replace the rear brake shoes with P/N 18029651. THIS FIX DOES NOT APPLY TO
THE 13 x 2 1/2 BRAKE,
DURASTOPT P/N 18029650, OR ANY OTHER SIZE. On Suburban models, a brake
combination valve must be
replaced. ALL OTHER MODELS (C/K, G Van), NO BRAKE COMBINATION VALVE CHANGE
IS REQUIRED.
Refer to the Drum Brakes or Hydraulic Brakes subsection of the appropriate
Service Manual. For G2/G3 Series Vans only
(with GVW's of 7,700# up to 9,500# -- RPOs C3F, C6P, E23) also replace the
front brakes pads with P/N 12471685.
Refer to the Disc Brake subsection of the appropriate Service Manual.
Important
The new front brake pad material has been selected for improved wear
characteristics. Some customers may experience
increased brake noise from this brake pad and should be advised that some
squeal is a characteristic of this particular material.
Important
If you encounter disc brakes that are extremely worn on the inboard side,
with very little wear to the outboard side, verify the
clearance between the caliper and the steering knuckle bracket stops.
MEASURE THE CLEARANCES INDIVIDUALLY AND ADD THE CLEARANCES TOGETHER FOR
TOTAL
CLEARANCE BEFORE REMOVING THE CALIPER. If the caliper (total clearance) to
the steering knuckle stops is under
0.26 mm (0.010 in), correct this by filing metal off at the steering knuckle
stops in order to obtain a total clearance of
0.26 to 0.60 mm (0.010 to 0.024 in). DO NOT FILE METAL OFF OF THE CALIPER.
Refer to the Disc Brake subsection
of the appropriate Service Manual for additional information on this
procedure.

IIRRC, the short wheel base SUVs already had a "better" ratio
and the long wheelbase Sub's had the wacky 85/15 ratio.

Why the rear drums don't self adjust well. There isn't enough
pressure to fully engage them going backwards, unless you
really nail them to the floor while going backwards.

Either nail them going backwards (really don't have to be
moving, just in R and lots of gas while holding the brake
pedal HARD, several times mixed in with a bit of forward
motion) or manually adjust them (JB6's).

That wacky setup is mainly for rear ABS, as drums can't
be modulated as well as disc's, so they had to put in some
delay into the system.
