If only this were true. GM stopped making our parts in 2016, as well as the parts for my wife's 2009 Caddy.

Yes a few years ago I wanted a new dash pad and after 5 years they did not have one anywhere. I even contacted gm directly at their home office. They apologized and sent me a gift card for $100 for one time use. This still did not solve my problem.

A gift card!? I'm actually surprised they even sent you a gift card.

As for struts, I know the KYB AGX struts fit. Those are strut only too.

I ended up going to the dealer and they ran the VIN number and verified my car came with the FE4 suspension with 18" wheels. They gave me the AC Delco part numbers and found them on Rock Auto for about $75 each. These are just the strut and not the entire strut assembly. They do not come in the entire assembly. I bought all new parts for all four corners and it was right at $420 delivered. I had the local shop put all four in for $200 labor and used the Auto Zone spring compression tool for free. They fit perfect and the ride is factory new now! part number for the front is AC Delco 506-600 and the rears are 506-282. the mount kit for the front are the same for each side but the rear has a mount kit for left and one for the right. Hope this helps someone out, it sure was a pain buying the wrong parts on line and sending them back.
