Steele Rubber Products is planning/working on having all of our door seals available, making it a one stop shop for all our door seals. While convenient they are not always the best deal for generic seals. If you find another supplier, feel free to link them here and I will update this post to include them.

Here is an option for the drip rails above both front doors and the slider: https://amzn.to/32jpimo
Generic front door seals: https://amzn.to/3qaIs6h
Front door glass outside weatherstrip rubber/felt/fuzzies, ride against the glass on the outside GM15757529 are over $100 each when you can find them, here is an aftermarket that requires just a little bit of trimming should work on all years: http://amzn.to/2z1fnii
Sliding door seal, Fairchild says it will fit through 94, but it should fit all years https://amzn.to/3vx558S


Don't forget that GM recommends silicone grease 1x per year for maintenance, more in damp/cold areas.

Thanks to Paul_S for bringing the rear drip strip to our attention, and dmagosta for mentioning that they are planning on doing all of the seals.

I know this is an older thread, but any advice would be helpful as I've got knee surgery coming up and have one week to get this installed - it rains regularly here in Florida.

I've got the Steele Rear Liftgate Window Seal Set, PN 70-4083-85the kit for the top of the passenger dutch doors. Excellent quality. Fitment is an issue as the main extrusion doesn't have holes for the existing 7 rivets. Has anyone else installed this kit? Did you cutoff or drill out the rivets?
remove the rivets and clean the entire metal "lip" really well. after cleaning, do any bending to be sure it is as straight as possible. IMO, Steele's replacement is BETTER than original, because it has a groove molded into it that slips completely onto the 90 degree lip.

it doesn't take much adhesive to hold it in place on the lip, but it's very important you use enough to make a good seal under the top leading edge and around the hinge cutouts.
Thanks Augiedog.
I'm trying to decide how to remove the 7 rivets, Dremel cutoff wheel or drill?
I expect that the rivet holes will need to be filled in before installing the seal.
Doing this today so I'll post the results here when it's done.

I believe Steele Rubber says to glue it in place.
Thanks Birdshake,
Looking for advice on removing the rivets so I can glue in the seal.
