Yes, that is the one.  Yours is a good deal for the money, but I was worried about sand and water since these are usually inside the Saturns.  Did you do anything for sand seals on the shaft?  Seal the electric control box?  I know Dave's went out on him.  I just used  10 gauge wire and 40 amp breaker, should be good.

I used a old shifter boot cut down to seal my bearing. thought that was the place it was binding last time we all was at LS. ended up being the mount I have on the 1 1/2 tube to the steering shaft at the steering wheel.

ya basically same boot except came off a master cyl off a chevy. theres a small vent hole in the eps body and i glued a peice of a scotch bright pad in the hole to let air out but keep sand out. my steering shaft mount has a bearing in it but i grease it once a year.

The foot is doing better every day, no crutches, just a walking boot now.  The car is ready to load in the trailer.  I was changing the oil, and noticed a motor mount bolt and bushing were AWOL.  Glad I spotted that.  Don’t know how long it has been missing?

Good to hear the foot is getting better.
