In Reply to: power brake assist unit , how $$$.... (more) posted by kevin k on November 21, 2000 at 16:53:43:

a lot of pedal effort. You should be able to find the unit for a lot less. Common term is a brake booster.

Had the car at the steeler today, 31 pt. inspection came bake w/ I need a new power brake assist unit. The car was stopping on a dime before I brought it in, has 8k on ATE powerdisks/ braided lines and red stuff pads.

Any way steeler quoted $444.15 for the unit + labor, will call my independent, but any ideas on this, would I notice if this wasn't working correctly? Cost, is it high? Are rebuilt units available/safe enough to use?

Thanks in advance, Kevin k
