OK I checked the GM stock and there is not a single dealership in the USA showing one so it is going to have to be used. Good Luck in your search.

Garage
FWIW I bought one at a dealership in Simi Valley, CA last year. It was shipped to them from Detroit. First one had a bend in one corner so they ordered another one.

Sounds like I got one of the last ones available if Mike did a nationwide search.

Junkyard would be a option....although it would likely be "well used"...

I did and found nothing. About 2 years or so ago I had checked and at that time there were 3 available so you probably got one of those.

Since it's going on your daily then maybe a DIY. Appears to be several directions available, even better if able to template from an existing one. Just the first hit on duckduckgo::

\'96SS SOB: SSRI, Herter Tune, Tri-Y II, , 3000 Edge, F/HO bars, METCO extendeds with CV MMC, Bilsteins, currently Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta (315/35 rear). Finally, wait for it... LT-4 knock module!
\'96FWB BUW-Butt Ugly White: PCMPerformance tune, HDFA w/ swissed filter, 1/2 SLP s.s. catback with H- and Flow Super 50s, oem opti rebuilt 3 times, SS Bars, METCO LCA, Airlift 1000, Monroe SS, PowerTrax No-Slip, CTS wheels with +1 rubber. Finally, yes again... LT-4 knock module!

You can buy reproduction new ones these days, but yeah junkyard or DIY is your only option otherwise. New one is about $200.
