i got my set for my 92 SSEi from the junkyard for like 30 a piece and i just needed the outers, these came off of a perfect car that was smacked in front so they actually had no delam. good used ones can be found if ur patient but most cost as much as new.

You're backwards Pat, remember we talked online about this? Its the lenses that aren't available through dealers, and GMPD only has one of the four lenses.
I can get both outer lenses through the dealer.....they are 68$ cost.....around 97its if you dont have a parts hookup

Pat, your friend is wrong. The tails are still available as a whole unit.

No I didn't! That info is what I needed!! I just checked their web site and, while still expensive (about $375 for the pair including shipping), it'* about half of what my local dealer quoted. While the junk yard is still a possibility, given that the original pair only lasted 12 years before cracking with no apparent cause, I'd hesitate spending more than $50-100 on a use pair.

But mostly, thank you for deciphering GMPD for me. A much better source for new parts than a regular dealer -- certainly than mine.

I called my local dealer yesterday and was told that is still a valid part number and that there still is inventory.

Keep in mind the lights you have only lasted 2 years, but then again, how many more years are you going to have it, and is it worth that price? Add shipping on top of it.

Personally, I think the best option is a light tint to hide the delamination. I've tinted for that reason on 3 of the 4 sets I've done.
