If you hear the hiss inside the cab then the vacuum booster has a seal that is failing, you will have to replace the vacuum booster, but before you run down and get one check under the master cylinder right where it bolts onto the booster and look for a brake fluid leak where they join together, if you find a small leak there then it would be a good idea to get the entire unit and replace the entire assembly.
