They don't have the bearing so I suppose I have to get one from the stock strut mount. But also not sure where those circle things that come with it go. I think these are the spc ones or eibach ones.

I don't know why you didn't just go to a junk yard and get one . If couldn't have gotten a knuckle for the SVT I was going to use a camber plate to do it. It still may be cheaper to get one from a junk yard

I only paid 20 for the camber plates anyways compared to however much the knuckle would have cost. Plus there could have been a chance I would need to change the bearing again which costs more. This seemed better to me money wise.

Well, I found the culprit to my power steering issue ... it wasn't the pump, but since I already bought the new one, I am going to go ahead and replace it anyways.

It so happens that my pressure line snapped. Hence why when we put new fluid in, it just spilled right back out.

It may be like the one Travis has which has no tune on it. You can mess with some stuff still.

I could be wrong but when you click on custom tune there is no custom tune there so you get an error.
