Door Check

Anyone know if the front driver side door check from the Chevy SS is the same as on the G8?
The door check for the G8 lists for 115$ while the 2014 SS lists for 38$.

11 caprice/08 G8 - 92258180 - $120 list

14 caprice/14 ss - 92295823 - $54 list

Same with the caprice. I have a 11 and 14 and they look the same to me.

Thanks I'll look into getting the caprice or SS one. Ebay has used ones for sale for reasonable prices but I'm not going to put in a used part which will likely fail sooner.

Really? The doors checks seem to be different parts for front and rear doors. PM me a link to that part on Ebay if you can. I cannot seem to find it when plugging in either part numbers or description. Thanks.

Bolt distance is the same. Set caliper on the White 11 and it was the same on Black 14



Think the difference is in the check profile, 14 seems to be much more aggressive. But the force needed to close and open seems about the same on both of my doors. Not sure if they changed the spring tension to adapt.

Thanks it looks like the PPV 11 is the same as the 09 G8 even the torx bolt used to attach to the door.
Maybe opening distance may be wider on the 11 vs the 14?
Thanks for the pics.

Wanted to bump this up. Part number 92258180 shows as the replacement check for the G8 and the 2011-2013 PPV (not surprising considering much of the same architecture shared). Steve's pics up there kind of lead one to believe the 2014+ SS/PPV door check would work fine.

I want to report that on my 2012 PPV (which shares the PN with the 08-09 G8 as well), the PN for the 2014+ door check fits perfect and works like a charm.

$77 vs $35 for the 2011-2013 and 2014+ parts respectively.

Just an FYI.
