Default Replacement knuckle search

I'm pretty sure I have a RT front bearing going on my 07 MT base model convertible. I wanted to keep the repair time down so I figured I would replace the knuckle instead of having the bearing removed. I only have 1 car. I searched around for 07 manual tranny, w/o turbo knuckle and I cant find one in the recycle sites. I'm starting to wonder if any other knuckle can fit. I've read that the GT and turbo are slightly different due to shorter turning radius and supporting a bigger load. Any suggestions on what knuckle will fit this rare model .

drill thru links in my signature, Chrome has part manuals listed.

compare part numbers (use web to check for supersedes > consolidation)

appreciate the quick response. I wish it was that easy. I did look up the spline/knuckle numbers and they are different for my year and trim type. problem is I'm not going new and the recyclers dont list by part #, just interchange #. I'm looking for the knuckle, bearing together from the yard. no one lists the basic, convertible, natural aspiration.

They interchange book say the 01 driver door will not fit 03 and up. I have it on the project car and have never found any differences. Go figure?

those links go to some REALLY NICE parts catalogs. They made the search and filter really easy. Of course the news is bad, the manual, convertible base engine doesnt cross fit to any other knuckle. figures.

Cant thank you enough for the links.
