Pre- Cat o2 Sensors.......Everything I've searched came up pre-cat o2 sensors,

Before you replace them, make sure your car is well tuned, plugs, air & fuel filters are all up to date........check the MAF Sensor Boot for cracks & vacuum leaks, also clean the MAF Sensor......with a Mass Air Sensor cleaner sold @ most auto parts stores......
