Default 2011 upper strut mount bearing count

I want to reinstall the original upper mounts on my original struts that I replaced with koni yellows. When I was taking them off, a few bearings fell out. I think I got them all, but how many are there supposed to be?

If its like the '05+, there is a plastic retainer with
holes in it, count holes = bearings.

Might be buying a 2012 GT500 that I will either put my Koni yellows and Steeda sports on or sell them. Gonna return the 2011 to stock.

Ethics does not involve a few ball bearings.
There is a little more to it than that.

Slapping something back together half-assed with missing parts and letting it be "the next owner's problem" would be considered unethical. Yes, I know there is more to ethics than this, I've taken the classes and heard the lectures in vet school.
