brake question....I\'m leaking!!

OK this might be a stupid question, but what is the thing mounted to the frame rail on the passenger side with the brake hard lines running in and out of it???? Mines leaking and I don't know what to call it. From what I can tell its not the fittings so it must be the unit itself.

Re: brake question....I\'m leaking!!

Mine leaked too...I found it strange that they would have one in the engine compartment for front and back, but then have another for just the rear, side to side. Anyway, I removed mine and ran new lines from the front porportioning valve directly to the back brakes.

Re: brake question....I\'m leaking!!

Thanks guys, I'm a idiot. I just couldn't figure out why Suzuki would use two porportioning valves. I think I'll remove it, I need to change over from a dual line rear to a single for the Toyota axle anyway.
