Default Oxygen sensors

Does anyone know what I need to order for O2 sensors. I want to replace them. Do I need one for before cat and one for after cat? It does not specify on the parts web sites.

Default True TRUE TrUE

Being an F-body owner and the horror stories of Bosch O2'* I would ONLY reccomend using the AC Delco/GM or Denso O2'* any not only the Bonne'* but any GM vehicle -- unless you want to chase DTC'* or replace them are more than 'regular' intervals... I think Harofreak and I can adapt the old saying 'You pays me now .. or pays me later' will hold true!

Changing it is not to hard. If you have a O2 socket, it will be easyer. If not, I think it'* a 15/16 open end wrench. Also, wear gloves when installing your new one. The anitseize will iritate your skin.

Should these be replaced after a recommended amount of miles? My car isn't showing any serious symptoms but I think my mileage could be better and I don't think its the plugs.

Also you can go to Autozone and they'll let you rent there free, you have to give them like 10-20 bucks but you'll get your cash back when you return it, otherwise you just bought it lol...Also looking in I belive the General info thread they give a discount price from that site, I'm going be ordering my rear in 5 mins..

Andrew the one that says DENSO Part# 2344018 the one I would need for the rear one by the cat?
