Give serious consideration to buying from your local Chevy dealer. It will cost more, BUT if you need it, there is WARRANTY.

I would, but whenever I try to support my local dealer buying parts, they really stick it to me with full MSRP.
Here is an example of an alternator
https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oem-pa...aGV2cm9sZXQ%3D
$182 vs $338 msrp.
If it were even halfway in between, but almost double? I tend to order online; oh and the counter guy is very rude when you hesitate or ask about their full msrp's.

Blown shock

My right rear shock on my 2013 blew at 26,500 miles last week. I actually heard it "pop". From that point on the whole car rode like a bucking board. I purchased the car from a Chevy dealership earlier this year as a "CPO" car. Took it in and luckily it was covered. Rides and handles as normal now.

Add me to the blown rear strut/shock club, I have almost 60K, but I think they have been blown for awhile. I was switching over to my winter tires and saw the telltale wetness on both. I have already replaced the front passenger side this spring , so I will just bite the bullet and get the driver's side front as well so all four are relatively new.

I was wondering why, when a conventional shock fails the ride gets bouncy since the shock no longer damps the spring. Why does a mag shock get stiffer than hell when it fails.

Just ordered new back struts at Rock Auto $ 390.00 a piece.
77000 miles and it's the first time btw, luckily.
Chevy dealer quoted me $ 800.00 a piece.

Much of the difference is in warranty. Your local chevy dealer will warranty them for a year from purchase.

I just buy another set then lol for the same money.
No seriously it's because I read in this topic that the OEM ones don't last anyway so I bought these instead.

BTW any guys that bought these AC Delco ones and still riding them after ...?? miles ?

I just found the AC Delco rear struts on Amazon for $237.50 each, $475 for the pair. I think they had 10 in stock. That is the best price I have ever seen for these. Get em while they are hot.
