    Sorry I looked all over, but it was a year ago and the receipt is long gone. They were not in the help section. They had them behind the counter in boxes. It was similar to the help section part number however last digit was 1 higher or lower. I think Jc whitney had them cheap as well.

    The HELP! ones worked great on my 89 Blazer. Then again, I opened the box and compared it to the one I had and it was dead on the same. With my discount I think I paid about $9 a piece for em.
