Service bulletin 08-08-110-010 describes the conversion and (thanks to the Internet Archive) the text is available here. Here's the list of parts I used:
GM Description 25864433 Floor Mats, Carpet, Front (ebony) 10351595 Hook, Front Floor Panel Carpet
My strategy was to use masking tape and a sharpie to mark the position of the old mats and then cut slits in the carpet for each hook such that the new mats would end up in the same place.
You need two hooks for the left/driver's side and one for the right/passenger.
The location of the right/passenger side hook moved in late 2013.
When installed the hooks cover the old stud holes in the carpet.
The original was much larger than the replacement (GM 19178634). Ultimately I found it easier to remove the entire assembly and replace the solenoid on the bench. I later tested the original solenod with a suitable 12V power supply; I found that it frequently would stick in the retracted position.
It's listed in TSB (#99-08-64-016A) as being one of the two products that should be periodically applied to weatherstrip surfaces. A cheaper option is dielectric silicone grease (GM 12345579 or equivalent).
When the radio does not receive any frames on the J1850 bus from the XM module it will remove the soft button for XM bands.
