replacement to dgr front pillowball mount/ strut bearing

Hey guys yet another problem with my dgr coilovers. At the top of the strut (if thats what you call them on coilovers) the bearing that goes in the mount has seized up on me. I found some images of the mount/ bearing new for reference:



I was able to grease it up to the point I have horizontal movement back on it, but can not get the bearing to spin so when I turn I get a loud series of pings because the strut piston is spinning in the bearing sleeve rather than the bearing spinning. The closest to a replacement I have found is this from ksport :

Now I do not know if these will work or not?

I am at a loss as what to do because dgr will not get back to me on a replacement part. Maybe a stock mount would work on them? Any Ideas or suggestions would be great.

i had a similar issue with my LCR camber plates. in the end i dismantled the plates, pressed the bearing out to get a part number off it. But when i had it out i cleaned it up really good. and it works fine now. and the replacement spherical bearing was too expensive. I also put some caps on the strut tower so i didnt get grit falling into the bearing anymore.

Thanks for the advice, looking like I will order that part from ksport just to see if I can make it work. I dismantled it and cannot revive it unfortunately
