Default Fuel Pressure Regulator-94 Vin W hard to find

So my truck is idling a bit rough, and knowing that these trucks have somewhat problematic fuel systems I hooked up my fuel pressure gauge. I am losing pressure. I pulled out that air restricter in the top of the intake to look inside, and sure enough, the passenger side looks damp, and it smells like fuel in there. I am looking to replace the pressure regulator, but I can't find one on any of the parts store websites. I called the dealership and they said I need to buy the whole fuel spider at $375. I'm pretty certain I don't have a problem with that, since the owner before me just replaced it. I have seen fuel pressure regulators that are said to fit my engine, but I wanted to make sure that would be right. I don't understand why the major parts stores and the dealership wouldn't carry the pressure regulator, but I can get one anywhere on the internet

Dorman sells just the regulator by itself. Check Oreilly auto parts website.

Thanks for your help, I actually ordered one from RockAuto since it looks like I can't get one locally. Looking on napaonline.com and autozone.com there wasn't a part listed, but I guess I'll have to wait for one.
