I am the umm....proud owner? Of a 1992 Oldsmobile Bravada with just over 173k miles on it. Has been very well taken care of by the previous owner so it is actually in quite good shape for it's age. With that said - it is time for me to start looking for replacement parts for this car as it is the only one we have for a while and still have to make sure it runs at least for a little longer. :)

I need to replace the turn signal switch, the struts and shocks are desperately seeking replacement (Speed bumps I used to laugh at now laugh hard at me as I run over them and I hit my head almost on the headliner), and in general a few other things. In calling around junk yards locally, none can be found for parts so, this leads me this:

Is there a different GM model that is cross compatible with the 1992 Bravada?

I have heard many comments that it is like the Chevy Blazer body style and pretty much the same, Wikipedia suggests it, but can't seem to find much more than that. Any fellow Neowin member have any ideas on cross compatibility?

i'm not familiar with the compatibility side, but for a car that old this might be of help

With a car that old, just to be sure, first think id do is a coolant flush, oil change, and new plugs n wires.


Check out rockauto.com. I've purchased from them many a time.

Yeah man. When I go into work tomorrow I'll see if we have any of those parts. If we have any, I'll work something out with you. Also, I will check the interchange for you as well.

EDIT: Actually, I will just go into work real quick and check. I'm not doing anything and am bored. Will have an answer shortly. (I live right next door to my business.)

EDIT2: Unfortunately, we don't have any of the parts. Also, the signal switch is termed a column switch. The interchange showed nothing other than the 1992 Bravada. It isn't always correct though.
I'm fairly certain a Bravada doesn't have struts, just shocks. An S10 Blazer should work. But I usually don't recommend salvage yard shocks/struts. Never know the mileage that was put on them.
Anyway, sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Chevy Blazer and the GMC Jimmy are the same chassis and your Olds. They should all use the same internals, but the trim might be different.
