Silverado 1500

My 2002 Chevy Suburban rear lift glass has separated at both hinges. It is currently being held in place with 100 mile an hour tape while I am trying to find replacement glass. Apparently Chevy will not recall this although it seems to be very common and is an obvious hazard should the glass fly off onto a vehicle behind me. The Chevy dealership is charging ~$900 for the part.

I received two new tailgate cable supports from a dealer in arcadia, Florida this past winter. I installed them myself on my 2002 Chevy C2500 hd crew cab pickup. I have reason to believe the new cables are not made from stainless steel as they are supposed to be. This is because a magnet will stick to the cables, just like to old ones. The dealer really had no answer other than the new cables were the ones they were installing on everyone's vehicle that responded to the recall. I know that 203 type stainless steel has a small amount of carbon and will attract a magnet slightly, but I still believe the "new" cables are the same as the old ones. Thank you, gene faulconer.
