I was driving and suddenly it sounded like air was escaping from my brake pedal and the brakes got real stiff. I went to a shop and they told me I needed a brake booster the service would be about $550. Later the guy told me the part was cheaper than he thought and gave me the paperwork that says centric parts raman P/B booster $225.50 and R & R power brake booster $222.50 for a total of $448.50. My question is are there two power boosters and if so would both necessarily need to be replaced? It's a 1994 Chevy S10 4WD pickup. Thank you.

SOUNDS LIKE THEY MIGHT BE A-BOINKING YOU!

LET'S LOOK AT THIS REMAN (I FIND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH REMANNED STUFF)

THERE IS A GOOD WARRANTY ON MOST ITEMS

http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/wearever-vacuum-power-brake-booster-without-master-cylinder-remanufactured-54-71099/18690095-P?searchTerm=power+brake+booster

SORTA AT THE OTHER END OF THE SPECTRUM, HUH?

I CAN ALSO SHOW YOU HOW TO KNOCK $25 OFF OF THAT IF YOU LIKE

NOW

THE PROBLEM YOU HAVE IS THE SHOP, NOT THE VEHICLE'S PROBLEM

THIS NEXT INFO WILL WORK NATIONWIDE, SO GIVE IT A TRY

LET'S GO WITH ANOTHER OPINION, FROM SOMEONE ENGULFED IN THE INDUSTRY (NOT FROM FRED DOWN THE STREET, THAT BASICALLY KNOWS WHAT YOU KNOW)

STOP IN A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE, ASK TO SPEAK TO THE COMMERCIAL PARTS MANAGER. (BEFORE 5 PM - HIS HOURS ARE THE SAME AS THE SHOPS HE SERVES). HE'S DELIVERED PARTS TO MANY OF THESE FOLKS FOR A WHILE AND HAS SEEN THEIR SHOPS AND KNOWS THE WAY THEY OPERATE AND ACT. HE ALSO DEALS WITH THE CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE USED THESE SHOPS. HE WILL KNOW OF A DECENT, INEXPENSIVE SHOP, THAT DOES QUALITY WORK (ASK HIM IF HE WOULD USE THEM) (ASK IF HE WOULD SEND HIS MOTHER TO THEM)

I KNOW THIS SAME INFO FOR MY AREA, I USED TO DELIVER PARTS PART TIME (AND I GOT THE SAME KINDA FIELD EXPERIENCE AS THE COMMERCIAL PARTS MANAGER.)

AND YES, THE STEALERSHIP IS NOT THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN!

AFTER YOU FIND THE RIGHT GUY, YOU CAN INQUIRE ABOUT USING PARTS YOU BUY, INSTEAD OF HIM SUPPLYING THEM (MOST SHOPS MARK UP THEIR PARTS)

RETURN TO THIS THREAD WITH A MONEY SAVING GRIN!

WAITIN' ON YOU!
