The most recent version listed for your car might still be the plastic frame LIM gasket. GM part numbers for them are in the Techinfo article linked above. The aluminum frames cost about $30 more than plastic, but are worth it.

Rocker bolts are torque-to-yield, so that means they need to be replaced, too.
