    A new door from a GM dealership is about $500. Through GMpartsdirect.com I think it is about $380. If the door shell isn't damaged you could get away with just replacing the door skin which would be alot cheaper.

    you also have to get new wheel well moulding, and either use all of your old accessories from your damaged door or buy all new glass, handles, etc.

    I've got Jap doors on mine that are actaully heavier than my dads GM door on his '89. The body gap doesn't match 100% though, but all and all the quality is excellent. I really wish I knew where they came from because it came like that when I bought. It was probably less than $150 per door.

    I just think its kinda wierd that a door cost $500, while a complete rear floor assembly costs $400. Heck, my tailgate only cost $357. (GM parts)
