Does anyone know of a good replacement antenna that sticks up straight? More just for looks than functionality, I'd prefer just a straight, simple non-telescoping chrome mast without a spring.

I thought the Metra 44-UT10 would do the trick but no matter how I turned it, it was leaning to the side. I've also been scouring the local junkyards but every one I find is mangled or broken.

Why doesn't anyone make a simple split-ball antenna without a spring? mad

Yeah, they have 47 antennas listed ad being compatible with my van.

In addition to the Metra mentioned earlier (which was also listed as compatible on some sites), I've already tried two of the ones JCW sells and using the supplied bases, they stick out all wonky no matter which way I turn them.

Nobody's replaced the antenna on a Chevy?

How about an OEM one w/ the base? Anyone have a spare?
