Just by what you have said, you haven't mentioned any residual valves. If the booster/mc are on the frame (under the floorboard) you need a 2# residual (blue) valve for the front, and a 10# residual (red) valve for the rear. If you have residual valves than you need to adjust the proportioning valve or get an adjustable one. I hope this helps.

Normally the prop valve is set to apply the back brakes first then the fronts will apply a bit later..this is a normal set up..if not readjust the valve..
