    Are you still using a stock proportion valve?

    Also check your lines. The rubber lines going from the steel line to the calipers can collapse inside.

    I put new rubber line on front. I am still running the stock proportion valve.

    Get a adjustable proportion valve, the stock valve is not set up properly for a front and rear disc manual brake setup. its probably not sending enough pressure to the rear calipers.
    have you done any hard braking to see what wheels lock up first?
