depending on local regs, bypassing it is easiest if its not required for any roadworthiness cert

The only inspection I have to pass is for emmissions. That said I would not do anything to degrade brakes. The result would have to be as good or better than the original or I would not be comfortable driving the car.

the LSPV only dials the rear brakes off a bit when unloaded to try and prevent rear brake lockups when theres no weight in the back. In all honesty, most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference if it was there or not, I bet 90% of the ones fitted out there don't work properly.

What have others done?
Thanks!

This is a personal story, and not meant as any advice, etc. I had the RWAL, and never actually felt the brake pedal ‘pump’ as you’re supposed to. Anyway, a few years ago, I did a frame swap with a 1997 Vitara. Turns out that my RWAL hadn’t been working, and who knows for how long...I used the rear axle/diff from the Vitara which did not have RWAL. The guys who did the frame swap did not swap over the LSPV set up that was presumably on the Vitara. I am now running front discs, rear drums, no RWAL, no LSPV. And do not notice any difference. I still stop the same way I always did. My ‘theory’ is that for decades, cars didn’t have any of these circuits at all. And, as 2013 says, chances are these systems in these 20+ cars may not even be working. My RWAL wasn’t.
