Correct. I'm not sure about 1987, but I know that the parts are the same for endlinks from 88-99 for certain.

This sounds like a perfect job for the $20 Autozone giftcard I got from Santa Claus

I checked on GMPARTSDIRECT.COM
10026678
is listed for $9 each... with a GM price of $15....

Just phoned the local shop.... $28 dollars each.... YIKES!!!
There are only 8 left in Canada.... I need 4 (2 for each car).

You guys sure there isn't another solution?

Energy suspension are vastly superior to OEM.

Ground frieght from the US to you shouldn't be too much. Local pickup, ship to you. Someone in the NE would be cheapest.

You'll probably need new bolts for the rears. I bought OEM (thread/shoulder lengths are critical).

I'll agree that they are superior...

I haven't checked the 91 SSE yet... But both the 91 LE and 95 SE had rubber busings in the back, and they compress like mad... When I removed them they were almost faltened out... The fronts were urethane... But they were about shot...

The diffrence between the stock urethane and the Energy Suspension was worth every red sent
