Is your ABS light on? If not, then I'd say to inspect/check and or replace your brake hoses, they might be collapsing causing your issue. How is the brake fluid level?

The metering valve is the block the line go to i think your refering to. That slows pressure to the front brakes so the drums in the back can engage. Disc works faster than drum. If this is bad it may cause these symptoms. Also check your rear brakes make sure they are in working order. My dad had this issue on his 94 3500 dually. Shop charged him way too much money to replace everything in the front. Hydraulic Brakes dont tend to work to hard, they stop working.
