Default '06 Ion Steering Knuckle replacement?

Ok, Wife hit something in the road, broke the Steering Knuckle, it's midnight and I've been searching the internet (and Saturnfans.com) trying to find a replacement, but so far no luck. I've seen several parts for Cobalts, but nothing for this car.

2006 Saturn Ion 2 (2.2L)
I've found a GM Part # of (19303852) but no replacements from Dorman, Summit Racing or anything. Can someone help me out? Will the Cobalt part number work on the Ion? Something from the Pontiac G5?

Price isn't the biggest issue (but an issue none the less), I'm just looking for quick availability. I have an O'Reilly's, AutoZone & Adavanced Auto Parts in my area, but nothing for that part/car shows up on their websites.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Jonathan

I found one today at a local JY, I was just hoping to find a new one as these are problematic and prone to breakage.

Thanks,

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You're right, Dorman doesn't provide steering knuckles for any car whatsoever. It's not uncommon for aftermarket parts suppliers to avoid providing certain replacement parts which have too little turn over. Making parts which have little sales potential is generally bad for business.

An answer to that question could be ascertained by going to an online OE parts catalog and comparing part numbers between the Ion, Cobalt, and G5 for the steering knuckle. The web page linked below shows the part number you mentioned with a price which usually suggests that it's still available as new.

Depending on where you live different online OE parts sellers can have greater or lesser expensive shipping costs added to the parts price. Consider that also when making your purchase.
