Does anyone know if the 85-96 sliding door seal works on the 97-05 models? When I talked to GM they said all the door seal part numbers were superceeded up to 15101551,(all the way from '85) which is what the steele rubber products replaces, but it's 100USd and so for me in canada that means about $250 after shipping and duties. I found other products that are made for the 85-95 vans for a lot less, that look very similar.

I work on aircraft and if a part is superceeded that means that its interchangeable probably 99% of the time. also the steel rubber products works with 85 to 05 models, if thats the case you would have to assume the 85-95 part actually does fit up to 05 model years as well.
I'm pretty surprised I couldn't find more info about this on the internet, I'm usually able to source parts by cross referencing part numbers, but I've not found anything concrete, and some of the seals listed for the older vans have pegs or holes in the stripping. I'd rather not get a junkyard replacement as it will probably be degraded as mine is anyways.
this is a link showing the supercession, confirmed by my local GM parts depot as well.
Rear side door GM genuine OEM part.
btw I have a 2000 astro rwd cargo van.
