My car is a 1998, although I doubt those upper plates changed from 1993-2002. I do not need the upper A-arms/control arms, I only need the plates which they mount to. Unfortunately, in the official GM parts manual, there isn't even a part number for the plates. It lists them as "N.A." (part #3) and and says that they are included with the front upper control arms, part #8, along with parts 3-6.



Actually, knowing that, your advice may save me some money. The cheapest I could find, was GM PartsOutlet, at a little over $450 for the pair. That is still nuts, but way better than $700.

Suspension is the full Strano setup of springs, anti-roll bars, Koni yellows, and 1LE bushings.

You should check out the contacts listed at shbox.com If they are able to get the parts, I suspect it will be significantly cheaper than the online retailers.

I still don't know why none of the great aftermarket suspension guys (UMI, BMR, Midwest, Founders, etc) haven't made new UCA plates. It seems like it would be a fairly easy thing for them to make, there certainly would be a market for them seeing how even otherwise rust-free cars can have rusted up plates, etc. Come on guys, you make the arms and then make us stick 'em in our old rusty plates, what's up with that

Side note - on the rubber mounts themselves, I do OEM or Moog only. Nothing else I've tried fit right. People ask me why I stick with Moog for most OEM-style suspension stuff, answer is because most times I stray from them I end up with junk!
