sorry to dig up a 6 monther, wasn't sure if you guys ever got a hold of this number. I just called SPO today, and the number he gave me was:

89017817

Now... if you buy from a dealer, a *reputable* dealer will take any of the part numbers we've got, and give you the most up to date version of that part.

Should.

But anyway, that'* what I found today... can't find the part print on it (strange), so I can't verify it right now.

The TECHINFO article lists the P/N for the aluminum-framed LIM gasket as:

89017816

One digit difference. At this point, it looks like there is either more than one version of this new gasket or maybe different numbers assigned for different applications? It won't hurt to verify these as we go forward.

Nah, it'* the same part... similar parts are seperated by more than a single digit, usually. In any event, it could just be a packaging issue... typically, part numbers that vary by one digit are just a different step in the process... i.e. one P/N we have here is based on it being in a plastic bag, whereas another may be a plastic bag *and* a box.

Or something like that. On the plus side, a dealer (or GMPD) should correct it easily enough when you place the order...

Glad the powers that be threw a picture in there. I think the ones in that photo are the gaskets currently in my car!
