    Brakes are assisted like your steering system is with power steering. My Tahoe and most likely yours has vacuum assist. Hydroboost uses power steering pressure to assist with braking.

    Google Tahoe hydroboost conversion. There is plenty of videos and write ups on doing this conversion. The main reason people do this conversion is to improve braking performance. It is relatively inexpensive, especially compared to a brake kit like is being discussed, and it is straight forward from what I have read so far.
