Is the knock sensor same as auto?

I took the knock sensor out to drain the block and noticed the interior end of it is either broken or corroded off, making it difficult to thread back in.  I thought oh I'll just get a new one, until I saw a DIM price of $65.  Does anyone know if you can pick one up at an autoparts store and its compatible?

I had a similar problem with the OP sensor on my '10 350 Monsoon. I went in to AutoZone and after a little searching they pulled an exact replacement off of the shelf. Never a hick up with it hundreds of hours later. A knock sensor would be even easier to find I would imagine.

There is also one listed with it that is $53, it looks identical, I wonder what the difference would be.  If there are ones that look the same but really have different performance specs.

I'd with the cheaper one, but if you wanted a "real" GM one, which is likely identical to the others, you could get this:

I'd dress the threads with an NPT die or a file before I spent $50 to replace it.
