89-93 use the same sensor (block mounted)
94-95 use the same sensor (timing cover mounted)

PS: Both are over $45...did you mean cam sensor ??

Here is the link.. Notice the year, And Its only $18.99. But I did discover that Advance Auto has the right part for the 1993. So I guess its an mistake by Autozone.

The one showing in the link is a 94/95 sensor. They don't look anything like the 89-93 sensor which is completely different and they are not interchangeable.

That is not the correct crank sensor for an 89-93 SC. The correct one will have a slot that the reluctor wheel passes through and will include the 2ft long wiring harness.

Attached - photo of a crank sensor for my '90 SC.

I think the crank sensors for '89 - '93 are all the same.
