Would you happen to have a picture of how you tied the booster into the system with a catch can? I'm guessing it's about as simple as using a tee in the line going into the catch can. Also did you need to install a check valve to keep the booster under vacuum or is there one already in it?
I ditched the built in navigation and don't miss it at all. Google maps is much better so I didn't see any point in having both.
It squats maybe a couple inches with that trailer. I thought about getting some kind of helpers until I found it doesn't squat that much. Of course yours may be different if you have more tongue weight. I don't know what the tongue weight is on mine, but it's pretty heavy. I'd expect a loaded car trailer or something will be heavier though.
It can be done, but the wiring is not there and you will need a different module and some programming.
18" will fit as far as being big enough diameter to clear the caliper. The 19/20's still have an 18" wheel option. Hydroboost is awesome. I did that conversion on my 2003 along with the bigger brakes from the 14-18 trucks. Honestly though I don't think I would bother with it on my 14 with how it feels now after upgrading to the 19+ front brakes. I have considered ditching the vacuum pump if there was a good place to tap into the engine vacuum. I have V4 mode tuned out so I think the engine vacuum would be sufficient from what I've read.
It would be a guess but I would assume some grinding on the outer hump of the caliper or a spacer will be needed with most OEM wheels before 2019. The new calipers bolt right to the existing spindles. The existing hoses can be used, but I chose to upgrade to SS braided.

Looks like it's good for either. That would be about the only thing I could think of. I guess I'll install it and see what happens. I noticed that a couple of the aftermarket companies sell the same compressor model for either trucks or Suburban/Tahoes so I suspect it will work fine.
