weak brakes

hey guys,
does anyone know if there is any way that a proportioning valve might be restricting pressure to my front calipers.
if i slap on the snubbers hard the rears tires will lock up but the front tires wont.
the fronts locked before i started having a weak feeling because i did it intensionally and all the wheels locked up.
since this problem i have replaced the front calipers, rear wheel cylinders, and the master cylinder and booster.

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !
