As for the suspension - they think that the struts could be on the wrong side of the car??? I am going to look more into that now.

The brake booster hose is easy to change, I did it. Get the part from online or the dealer and buy two hose clamps at an auto parts store. Pry off the hold hose clamps, take the hose out (I found it easier to cut the hose off where it goes to the manifold to give more access to the clamp) and then just slip the new hose clamps over the hose and install.

For the intake boots but them as well and replace them yourself. If you don't know how to do that then use my vid:
