Question about 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 2WD
Well, all rubber seals/components will have to be replaced this includes but not limited to calipers, master cylinder, wheel cylinders, ABS unit... and the system most be flushed. The used of petroleum based fluids is a no no cause the rubber components in the system are not compatible therefore causing the rubber to swell and the brake system to fail.

Testimonial: "thank you! since i am going to do the repair myself can you tell me if brake clean will be sufficient to flush the lines? or what do i use? i understand i will need to replace each of the components as well."
Sorry, have to agree with hector, anything in line with rubber seals will probably need to be replaced. start at front and work back, might get lucky and will not have to replace everything. good luck.

check power steering fluid. first. if all good . power steering is going. your hydro boost brake system depends on the power steering pump if it goes out your brake go out.

the power brakes are a hydrolic system ran off of the power steering pump. therefore if you have a busted power steering hose the power brakes will not work.

The shaft in your power steering pump has broken. Your brakes work off of a system known as Hydra-Boost. If this shaft is broken then your steering and brakes are lost. I contacted GM after I had my power steering pump replaced and they sent me a check for the cost of my repairs. My truck was not under warranty or recalled but earlier models (2500HD) had been recalled for the power steering pump shaft. The pump was the same part number for my 2002 2500HD as the recalled years. Good Luck!

I know GM decided to run the brakes and power steering vacumm all off of the power steering pump on some of their trucks. This could really be a big problem because if your power steering quit it would stop supplying your brakes with vacuum to stop the truck. In my experience I would check out the situation with the steering pump. Change it for a new one. Don't take any chances on smashing your truck.
