Brake Proportioning Valve

I did an AAL on my Tacoma and just installed a longer eye bolt for the BPV. My question is this, what will happen if I have moved the BPV lever further than my AAL moved my rear axle down?
I know I will get more braking power in the rear. Is there anything wrong with that? Can I have too much rear braking power?

How much higher are you gonna move it? It's probably not enough that you'll even notice the difference.

Try slammining on the brakes really hard. Generally, you don't want the rear brakes to lock up first. You should be able to tell if/when they lock up even with ABS.

I probably moved it about 3inches from stock, while I lifted the truck about 1.5 inches.
