Brake Boosters

    Since larger diameter tires play havoc in more areas than gearing, speedo, shift points, brake performance also degrades. In my past dealings with building off road trucks, Jeeps,and Dodges I usually changed out the brake booster to get heavy metal machines to wooooa. For instance my 90' Jeep Cheerokee which ran 35's had a single diaghram booster. After migrating a dual diaghram from a '92 Cheerokee which wasn't that difficult, braking was now back to acceptable.

    So my inquiry is if any one has accomplished this on a 1500 Silverado (not HD model) and what brake boosters could be interchangable. I was thinking a 2500 brake booster may be swapped out, but if I approached a dealer with that question I think I'd get the dumbfounded blank stare that you so often get.

    I could research after market Calipers, but I'm betting a brake booster swap would do the trick.
