Brake Bias Plug Install

new 4/27/2004

Hey Larry, I took a few pictures of my brake bias plug install. Can you add this to the website?

Brake bias plugs are a cheap little mod designed to get more braking from the rear. They can be purchased from a few sources. One is Mikey over at www.midwestsho.com.  See this link: http://www.midwestsho.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/81?osCsid=f281d8b3176e8fddf768ff9f65e42e09 

It is important that these are not installed on a car without ABS. Other than that they're fine.

Now on to the installation.

1) Jack up rear left (driver's side)
2) Remove the rear left wheel.
3) Remove the 5 mm nut on the end of the bias valve actuator (see picture, I'm not sure of the official name of this thing).

4) Remove the two 10 mm bolts from the bracket.
5) Remove the actuator and toss (or hold on to it if you wish to revert back to stock).
6) Remove the two bias valves (15 mm socket)
7) Install the bias plugs in place of the valves
8) Bleed brakes. Speedbleeders make this a breeze. See www.speedbleeder.com.
9) Put the wheel back on
10) Lower vehicle
11) Test drive.
12) Drink beer.

Here's a pics of the installed plugs.
