Default replacement oxygen sensor

I still have my original oxygen sensor at 98,000 miles, so I figure I might as well replace it.. which of these brands would you go with?

Bosch 1 year warranty $69.00

Niehoff 5 year warranty $71.00

Borg Warner 1 year warranty $85.00

I've heard Bosch is crap, so I guess it'* eitehr one of the last two.. which would you choose if it were you?

it has two different options, one for "at converter" and one for "at engine".. the one for "at engine" says "two required." Maybe I'm dumb but I always thought there were two oxygen sensors total, one before the converter and one after... I'm looking to buy the one before the converter (the one that makes a difference in gas mileage.)

You could have a bank 1 and bank 2 sensor as well as the sensor after the cat.... Take a look at the front manifold and see if you have an O2 sensor in it... I don't think you do, so the one in the rear should be the only one you need... The one behind the cat just mesaures its effiency... It'll know if the cat is shot... So just to be sure take a peek at that fron manifold... If you would like a GM P/N for the AC Delco unit just let me know...
I sure would like that part number. If it'* close to teh same price I'll just go with that one. Thanks a bunch!

I just went to order my sensor and GMPD wants $12 to ship the damn thing! is that outrageous to send a sensor that is not even 1/2 a pound or is it just me?!
