Whoops! I edited the link. Should be good now. It's the VVT317 part. Is that the same as the control valve solenoid?

So, I don't know for sure.
The pictures I see indicate that the V8 uses the straighter solenoid, while the V6 looks more tapered:

BUT...
In the repair manual for 2016-2017 it looks like the one in this thread. pretty straight with one o-ring.

wintertopdown is still active here. I would try a PM to get clarification before you order. Says he has (or had) a 2017 1LT with the v6.

Yep. That looks like the part I need. Kinda wished GM's website would show a picture of the part only. It looks like #22 in the diagram is what I need. I did copy the part number and googled it. A picture of the part did come up in the search results.

You've got three equivalent part numbers to search there. I would buy the cheapest with a decent return policy. Don't know if you are planning to do all 4 or just a few.

I could be wrong, because you've been pretty right so far. But, it looks like your link is to the oil control valve, which is different from the crankshaft position actuators (solenoids). Clicking on Wintertopdown's link definitely leads me to the right part. Here's a picture of the control valve which I think your link is leading to. The last pic shows the intake and exhaust solenoids I want to replace and also my handy-dandy temporary zipties. I damaged a clip.

I think you are right, the one you are pointing to is the oil control valve, the tapered one with 3 o-rings in the pictures. Not the one you want.
I found a better diagram in the repair manual of the vvt solenoid and it is the straight one with a single o-ring.
Unfortunately not every website has a perfect cross reference of part numbers with pictures/diagrams. I always check multiple sites. I do like getting this stuff off amazon when possible because of the quick shipping and free returns.

Awesome. Thanks for confirming. I'll definitely avoid O'Reilly and try ordering from something like Amazon. I really appreciate it.

If you get these out and confirm one or more are bad, I would love to know why they failed. Not sure you will be able to tell. Sticking solenoid maybe?

I watched a video with someone testing one of these solenoids. He was wanting it to fail. The probe certainly looks like it could get stuck in or out.
