Hi Chris,

This load sensitive proportioning valve senses the static position of the
driver's side trailing arm of the rear suspension.  It is ahead of the Tee
which distributes the same hyd press directly to both rear calipers.  What
is this "big cylinder with a moving weight" thingabob?  Are you maybe
thinking of a hydraulic Citron, not a 44 chassis Audi?
