Some cars have servo savers on the servo themselves, some have a seperate part, either way it shouldnt matter, worse thing that can happen is it totally breaks and you cant steer.

i ordered the same parts that you did jeepers and can't seem to get the stock screws to apply to the aluminum... any suggestions... it appears that the stock screws are too big for the predrilled holes in the new item.

cloot what i did on the screws was this.... i just bought some of the shock ball heads... they have a nut on them instead of a screw... .and i just bored the hole out with some needle nose pliars and ran a 10mm long screw threw the hole into the nut..... works great and took like 2 minutes!

cloot since i put those aluminum hubs and holders on my buggy its like driving a very very fast tank lol.... last time i drove it i literally tried to break it just to c how much it could take....... I couldnt lol...... it ended up breakin though when i stopped trying to break it and ran into a 4x4 steel pole lol. it hit the lower arm at a weird angle and cracked it.... which those will be out in aluminum in about 2 weeks or so. I wrecked it so hard once that i bent the tip of the shockproof plank in a 90 degree angle lol.... but suprisingly nothing broke!

"shockproof plank"...LOL!

I laugh my ARSE off every time I look through one of the parts lists....

"front shield shock"

"Rear shield shock"

"Steering located plate"

"Rear axes holder"

"Doortype mounts" (one of my favorites)

"Arms strengthening slice"

"Clutch slice" (another favorite)

"Flower cover of bumper"

"Rear shield dumpage lever" (LMAO!)



And my most favorite of all....(had to order a set of these for my Hurricane the other day)

"Non-desquamated universal joint"

ROTFL!

Yeah I know!

I looked up "desquamated" and it means...

To shed, peel, or come off in scales. Used of skin.

So thats cool...with the "non" before that I guess that means they are fresh off the tree and I get to peel them before I put them on which makes it all the more worth the wait and much more entertaining...what a BONUS!
