Loosing brake fluid

About a pint every 3 months.... I have absolutely no idea where it's going.
I have no leaks on my lines, I have searched ever inch!! I have taken my rear breaks apart to see if it was leaking in the drum an being burned off an notta.... Someone told me it can be going into my booster, is this true? If so how much will it hold? I have put almost 4 pints ( or what ever they are called the little bottles) since last year..... Anybody? Oh it's a 2006 chevy 1500 5.3 v8

Have you checked your master cylinder reservoir cap? Your brake booster is not supposed to have fluid in it. If your brake master cylinder is leaking into the booster, that is a problem! The best way to check is to loosen the two nuts holding the master cylinder to the booster if it's wet behind there then your master cylinder is bad. If you replace it yourself don't forget to bench bleed the new master cylinder before you install it.
