Default I lost power brakes..

So the other day I pulled out my air filter to change it, and I'm assuming I knocked out a vacuum line somewhere. I'm just not sure where. Before I pulled the filter my brakes were just fine. Afterwords I didn't have power brakes, I've looked as few places around here and didn't really see anything like this. Any help would be great. It's a 96 1500.

Since they worked before the air filter change I would go with your initial diagnosis, a vacuum line off someplace. It would be a hell of a coincidence if your brake booster decided to go out at that exact time.

It's easy to do. Just follow the 3/8 line from the brake booster to the engine.
