    I need to replace my turn signal lever on my 85 K5.
    It has cruise ctl, Intermittent wipers etc, who stocks the cheapest replacement, surely there must be someone else other than LMC (Who want $50 + S+H)

    Just the lever itself? Either try wrecking yards, or maybe northern automotives catalog, they seem to have lots of "odd" stuff for cheap. Sorry i don;t have a link to the webpage or even a tel #.

    Sure thats alot of cash, but the best I've seen so far. Napa was $74. I priced out GM too but it was too high to even remember.

    Hit the junk yards, any 80's-early 90's GM vehicle should have what you need.

    Holy Moly man, thats a bunch! You can always buy some 1/4-20 threaded rod and wrap it in black tape! What about the generic stuff in the "help" section at Autozone and Schlep Boys?

    Kragen auto parts wants $79.99....The fake chrome is peeling off mine, also the button for the cruise control is missing.

    I had the same problem, I went to the local boneyard and got a black one out of an S10. I only paid 5 bucks for it, and never have to worry about slashing my fingers on the fake chrome again either. I've also been told that pretty much any early 80's GM up until now will work. Good Luck to you on your search!

    Spend the money on the one from lmc. It is a brand new gm part. You can save about 25.00 by getting the one without cruise thats what I did. I think the gm dealer wanted almost 80.

    I can confirm that any GM stuff will fit...there was only 3 or so different styles. One was obviously newer style and the other were only int vs non int wipers.
