My 99 GSX spun the bearing on the left balancing shaft. Can I just buy the eliminator kit or do i need a different oil pump also?

Better to be safe than sorry, with all the metal that probably already ran through the oil pump I would suggest a new one.

The thing is i just rebuilt the motor and spent 150$ on a new oil pump. I found only small shavings in the oil pan and it didnt run long after it spun. Think its savable?

Possibly but its your call. If you do decide to try it I would just change the oil a couple times to try to get as much metal out as possible.
