Default Where to buy boost solenoid?

Hey everyone. Where'* the best place to buy a boost solenoid for my 93 sse? I have a code 56 coming up and from what I've read here that'* the culprit. None of the parts stores carry it here and I'm not going to get it from the dealer unless I have to. Looked on gmpartsdirect.com and didn't find it there either.

Thanks in advance.

That part is about 30 bucks from the dealer, and cheaper from www.gmpartsdirect.com

The 8-digit GM part number is 12353309 (for 92-95).

I've found that you have to send them a parts request email for some items. They usually respond within an hour or two.

Just post here. We're quicker. Many of us have the parts lists now (All Admins, and most of the Mods and Gearheads).

Many of the part numbers you may need are already posted here. Including the BCS. Just figure out the tricks to searching for what you want.

Thanks for the replies guys. I need to play w/ the search on here more. Like if I type in boost solenoid I get all threads with each of those words instead of both words. I guess I should try + or and and see if that helps. Back to the question at hand one of the dealers in town had one in stock so I decided just to go down & pick it up. Cost ended up only $7 difference and I'd rather have a car that runs right than wait for shipping. As soon as the engine cools in it goes along with 180 stat & a knock sensor too. I just bought the car, I'm amazed ppl will drive things w/ such major driveablity issues.

just click the "Search for all terms" instead of "Search for any terms or use query as entered"
