Sorry for the delay guys, I really do apologize. It's been crazy at work, and I was sent with several guys from work to pick up new vehicles from the train yard. Hard to get transports to bring us the vehicles. So we have been going for them our selfs.

Anybody ever see sway bar brackets break like this? It's on a 2007 Savanah 2500, short wheelbase, AC service van.
Maybe its just the angle but the bushings look bad. Probably some cheapo brackets and rust and slack in the bushings allowed the bar to move around too much.

So I’ve replaced both mirrors on the Yukon at one time or another. The driver side was shot when I bought it. Now, the passenger side has several LEDs out, and I’m looking for a better replacement. Looking on RA, they have quite a variety, but the ones that would be correct are $150-200, and still not OEM. Does anyone have suggestions, or a part number..? I’m guessing the OEM is no longer made / available. It has heat, turn indicator, and auto-darkening.

ETA:
ok, so OEM is available, for $300+… I don’t think I want to spend that on a damn side mirror, but I do want all the original features. Most aftermarket ones are not auto-darkening.
So I’ll edit my request.. lol. Looks like the OEM part is: 88944392, which has heat, turn indicator and auto-darkening.

Does anyone have a decent aftermarket replacement that has these features, and you’re happy with it? I replaced this one probably about 18 months ago, maybe less, and the LEDs are already going out

No worries man, you’re always a huge help to many of us. When you have a minute, I’d like your thoughts on either a 145A factory / reman alternator, or a 160A. I’ll have to figure out the belt length as well if I go with the 160A I guess, which sucks, since my Gates micro-v fleet green belt just arrived yesterday. Lol.
On another note, do you know if the 160A was an upgrade, due to the efan change in 2005?

The bushings actually look good, and stay steadily soaked with oil from everywhere that's leaking do they certainly arent dry haha. I slapped it all back together with the OEM steel straps and it's back to work!

My cabin is at the foot of a mountain called Sugarloaf here is Colorado! But its at 9300'

Thats cool! Every time I google "Sugar Loaf Mountian" Yours and another one in GA pop up before mine since it's really more like a bump compared to 9300'. Whenever I go back to CO for a vacation I might have to check your Sugar loaf out.

@Sam Harris You could try this one. I'm not sure if you have pwr fold or not.
You must be logged in to see this image or video!

You could always pop the mirror and leds out. I ordered from them before and the mirror itself (the glass)looked fine.
