I can definitely tell that the booster is helping stop the truck but its just too stiff of a pedal and I can NEVER lock up the wheels if it came down to needing to. I pinched the vacuum hose and got 2 stops until the vacuum was gone in the booster and then no more power assist.
Measure the pedal ratio. A diagram showing how to determine the ratio is here.
