Though equality is important in many aspects of life, equal force cannot be applied to both your front and rear brakes. It is common knowledge that a Mustang’s front brakes are larger and require more force than its counterparts in the rear. Why? Because when you depress your Mustang brake pedal, the center gravity of your pony car effectively shifts forward, which adds more weight and momentum to the two front tires. Because of these basic laws of physics, it is important for you to make sure that your front brakes are equipped with more stopping power than the rear. How can this be accomplished? Well, that is where the Mustang brake proportioning valves and Mustang distribution blocks take center stage!
Mustang brake proportioning valves and Ford Mustang distribution blocks play essential roles towards making any disc braking system work. As its name suggests, Mustang brake proportioning valves are tasked with controlling the braking pressure between the front and the rear brakes, and allocating the correct amount of pressure to each system. By design, your rear braking system can only take on a certain amount of stopping power in order to prevent the two back wheels from locking up. While it might be nerve-wracking to think about the possibility of your rear wheels locking, the Mustang brake proportioning valves give Ford owners the manual capabilities to properly distribute the tire pressure themselves.
Though they are not manually operated, the Mustang distribution blocks are also responsible for distinguishing pressure between the front and the rear brakes. Located inside the Mustang engine compartment, Mustang distribution blocks allow the brake fluid to be carried between the front and rear brakes.
Though rotating fluid and stopping power throughout both braking systems are usually routine procedures for your Mustang brake proportioning valves and Ford Mustang distribution blocks, it is not always that simple. There is always a chance for the rear brakes to lock up and become out of whack, particularly on wet surfaces. If you are experiencing any issues with your rear brakes, it might be time to start shopping around for new Mustang brake proportioning valves or Mustang distribution blocks.
