2001 156 Front strut bearing

I'm in need of an OSF upper strut bearing (suspension). Does anyone have one, or does anybody know where i'm likely to find one for sale? I've checked ebay and alfa workshop and neither have any.

The noise coming from there is terrible, it squeals like nothing i've heard when going over bumps (even minor bumps) or turning a corner.

I've had a mechanic check it over and he reckons it's either this bearing that's collapsed/knackered or the strut itself has had it. Considering the shock/strut is fairly new (6 months old) i'm leaning towards the knackered bearing.

This is what i get for going on a joyful run...

Cheers fellas
