Default where to get new power antenna

I hear the motor run but the mast doesn't move. I don't feel like marrying a new mast to the old motor so I'd prefer a new unit. I saw one at Autozone but without opening the package (making it non-returnable) I was unsure if would fit the contours of the fender, etc. Anybody got a source and part number? Thanks in advance!!

I've seen some on Ebay that are supposedly pretty decent. Otherwise you'd be lookin on GMpartsdirect.com

I've replaced mine twice. You can get the power antenna module from GmPartsdirect.com for about $80. It can be swapped out in about 1 beer with no problems.

When the second one puked, I just ordered the parts for the fixed one from my dealer for about $30 and was done with it.

The reception is much better, too.
