Back wheels locking up first sounds downright dangerous to me. It'll be 
worse when braking quickly from higher speed. Get your ballet shoes on for 
some piro...etting :o)
Proportioning valves put on 3:1 ratio ish [variable]

My brother found out that the rear truck lines are the same as the front 
Vanagon brakes I think. But only if don't have the proportioning valve. Also 
my brother has just replaced all of his hoses and pistons and front calipers 
and took out the proportioning valve (that measures weight on back engine 
and brakes from to back accordingly on 1980's, ,my 1981 didn't have one) he 
says the backs stop first and the brakes feel more spongy. Is this a bad 
master cylinder or is it the proportioning valve that was taken out. He 
wants to know before this weekend when he is making a trip from Minnesota to 
Wyoming to visit me. I thought the rear brakes stopping first might be the 
self adjusting part of the brakes might need to be pushing out again with 
the new rear pistons.
