 Do you like to slide as you break? Do you know why one might need more 
 biast in rear? 5KSCTQ rear breaks will not survive too much rear biast.
 I have seen front breaks placed in rear to survive this but the usual 
 biast control devises are too difficult to install in street 5K.
 I'm not an expert on Brakes but since the 5000qt has ABS would it matter how
much bias the rear gets??  If the rear tires come close to locking up the ABS
will kick in.. Not allowing the rear to "slide" that much.....
