see. This stuff I ain't sure on. I woudln't see why not!. its all just making it easier braking... I don't see what the difference really between a fullsize one and a van one is. I looked at my dad's on his truck and it looks the same.

I just went with a astro van cuz I know they work fine. I didn't want to chance it



It is like 500 or so for the kit from hydroboost.com.... there kit is great.. comes with great instructions and everything you would need.. but for the ppl that don't wana spend the money and have access to a junkyard with these.. its great



sorry for the crap quailty of the thread.. i made a nice one and my computer locked up.. so i just put this up in a hurry.. it gets the point

with hydro booster off other vehicles just make sure that the mounting plate is perpendicular to the booster itself. I know a lot of the dually full size chevys will work. The newer chevy vans will have a werid mounting bracket that is on like a 45 degree angle from the booster and it wouldn't mount to an s10 firewall properly. My friend got one to work but its not the prettiest thing in the word.

I used a 2002 silverado booster. I had to create my own mounting plate to fit the S10 bolt pattern but the pedal mount was identical to the S10.

the mounting isnt a prob i found one that they just cut the firewall and all off of.... but it does mount perpendicular to it and i belive they are the same .... talked to the parts guy in the shop he said they were and gave me a brand new one in the box....score...

I really don't think the year matters that much. Mines off 2002 and it looks almost identical to some of the older astro van models. The mounting plates is different and the rods ends may be different but everything else looked to be the same.

well the reason i asked is because a couple different years i looked at have different pedal mounts some look like the s-10 and some dont so i figured if i get the one that looks like the s10then i wont have to worry about cutting up a new hydroboost and trying to make it work when i could get one that just slips in place with minor stuff thats all

That is correct. The one I used required zero modification to the acuator rod. I just had to create a new mounting plate which is really easy to do.

and you say you made that bracket?
and how did you take off the other one?
is it bolted right there in the middle with a big nut around the pedal output?

thanks
