      You can not get a different combo valve from Jeep / DC for the same year that had both drums or rear discs irrespective of ABS up until about 2005. Previous to that, one valve was used for both - which leads me to believe that the residual pressure function is being accomplished in some other manner.
      Short answer - the brake proportioning valve should be the same for the disc brake as well as the drum brake set-up.

      Yes, the evidence of the right side brake pads having more wear / material gone - as compared to the other side - is an indication the brake caliper may be sticking and need replacement. You may also replace the brake fluid with new. Be sure to properly bleed the brakes and install new cailper pins / hardware when installing the new brake calipers.
      Try these on-line sources; www.autopartsnetwork.com or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the front brake calipers from around $20.00 each - minus the core exchange.

      Brake fluid is leaking from the primary piston of the master cylinder to the power brake booster. Check the power booster, you will see a slightly wet in that area.

      After finding the problem and fixing it make sure to wash everything real well . Brake fluid will eat paint and undercoating like you've never seen . And turn everything to rust .

      Sounds like rotors, but you might want to rotate the tires and check the suspension (track bar mounts) for looseness.

    How do I fix my tail light issue
    When the tail lights are off, the brake light turn signal work. When the tail lights are on and you hit the brakes or use turn signal, the tail light goes out. It comes back on when you let off the brakes or turn off the turn signal.
