It should as the plastic support bracket is only pushed up about 1/4" higher with the larger booster. If there is interference, you could cut off the tab that holds the wind deflector, as this will allow the booster to fit without raising the plastic support bracket.

The S10 booster body is 1.78" larger in diameter, so the body should be .89 closer to the frame rail and the plastic support for the sunroof air deflector. So I fabbed up a little stack of washers that approximate thickness, wrapped them in electrical tape and then test fitted them:


Plenty of room for the body, but the flange on the booster body will interfere:


The booster will also interfere with the plastic piece, but it is quite flexible and will move up the needed amount:

I agree! I also installed the braided SS brake hoses as well, what a difference! This upgrade as saved me a couple of times from the trouble my right foot always seems to cause.
