Truck shakes when applying the brakes in park. I have replaced the part below the master cylinder ( apportion something). The brakes are hard when pressing them to stop. Can it be the brake booster now an the diamfram is busted?

You mean the truck shakes when you com to a stop not in park. Check rotors for warpage as that is probably why and check rear brakes as well. As far as being hard to stop it can be the booster or the check valve or not enough vacuum to run the booster.

I took the hose off on the booster and put my thumb on it an it seemed ok but when I put it back on the booster it did it. The brakes where a lil bette but felt a smige better. They dont slow you down like they are supose to they kinda slow you down then like release a little an then the peddle goes in an you can stop now but its not a nice stop.

You are to inconsistent with your question and what you are doing, have a local pro look at this as I do not know what you have done and want me to straighten it out for you. I have no further suggestions.
