They should list the price on autozone. rockauto will also carry them and list the price. If memory serves, $30 comes to mind.

They are relatively cheap. If the one you are replacing is original.... prepare for a good fight. Give yourself enough room to drill the old rivets out. It'* a pain the first time or two you swap one. GM really put those babies in for life.
