I got a set of plug wires from Jeg's. They listed them for LT1 f-bodies, Caddies and Impalas. However, the distributor-side of the wires are straight plugs. On the passenger side you need a 90-degree bend in order to clear the A/C compressor bracket. I could probably force them to fit, but I'd prefer to use the right wires. Is the dealer the only option?

check rockauto. they sell the ac delco ones and it looks like they have a 90 degree attachment on them. $78 roughly.

Thanks.

I checked them out and they had 1 set of off-brand wires left for $13.42. Looks like they have 90-degree bends. I couldn't help but give them a whirl.

If they don't work, I'll go with Delcos.

For the record, the "KEM" brand wires from RockAuto for $13.42 were correct. 4 have 90-degree bends, 4 do not. 7mm wires, which looks like what the stock ones are.
