Default Front wheel bearing problems

Got the 2003 dream with the 5 speed which will matter here shortly. I cooked the driver side bearing and it spun in the spindle. Long story short the 5 speed has a specific spindle and I'm finding I might have to find one for the same year even. Thought maybe the srt spindle would work but from what I found only works for 04 and newer pt cruisers??? And than is the used piece I find going to be any better than what I have. I have new wheel bearings and hub just need the spindle or knuckle. Any help is much appreciated.

Your post inspired me to write about what I found out when trying to figure out knuckles for my own 03 GT DC2 5spd. You can read about it here:

Thanks dude. Those pictures really helped. Why they went to the trouble of making so many knuckles I will never know. I even thought It might be specific to the 2003 year also. Mine has a number 489aa on it and none I have found have the same number. I found a set for a SRT 4 but the number on it is 489ab and the hole is drilled in the center. I guess I just need to find one 2003 or newer with the hole at the end like yours in the pictures. Thanks again...............Matthew

You are welcome. If you find a gt parts car you should find the good knuckles on it.
