I do not have a suspension lift. Everything is stock. I don't know if the spring is sitting low or not...looks normal to me.
We had the rear end rebuilt by a shop that I was not impressed with...this was 5+ years ago. Shortly after we got the truck back one of the rear brake cylinders was leaking...some idiot put the seal in backwards. Also, the rear end still felt sloppy (backlash), right from the shop. Anyways, that is besides the point. My point is I wouldn't be surprised if they messed up the LSPV adjustment, or didn't know you were suppose to bleed the LSVP. The brake shoes have been changed since then, but I have never bled the LSPV.
I think I remember reading about guys putting in their own, manual PV...while bypassing the original LSPV (if the LSPV turned out to be shot).
Why would someone want to eliminate the LSPV w/o putting in aother PV? Like you said, it would provide full braking to the rear...which is the problem I am trying to eliminate. Don't you want something like 60/40 braking (front/rear)?
