After 3 attemps i finally got Great Lakes to delete 9 90 days lates from 3 years ago, I have been on time and current since 2011 but the fact I got the lates deleted are awsome. Will I see any score bump from this trying to get to 670 right now stuck in the 630 range.

That's great news! I think you will see some increase in your scores (because 90 day lates still hurt, even after 3 years), but it's hard to say how much because a lot of that depends on the rest of your credit profile.
Either way, it's a good thing to have those marks off your report and it will certainly help you in your rebuilding.

Could you please PM me the contact info or address you used when sending the letter?
Since it's been a few weeks since your post, you may already know the answer, but.. Since 90 day lates are major derogs, time does not weaken their impact much. Getting them removed should definitely help your score but the amount depends on what other negs are on your report. Good luck breaking 670.

I just started the process by filling out the general e-mail on their site, then when I got a response I sent it back to the rep who e mailed me. Like I said it took 4 emails and about 6 months of back amd forth and they finally agreed to delete lates.
