IRS mounts...

Rust ate a hole in the middle of my IRS mount and I would like to replace it. I went to Ford and they don't have em anymore. Went to autozone & napa they don't have em. Went to an auto shop and they can't get em. So its looking like a scrap yard is the last and only option. Is that statement true? Also can you get the brushing for them? Thanks for the help.

Was purchased in 92 as a demo bird and its been in the family since.

DLF here on this site is in the middle making a set of bushings from delrin but so far its still being in the development stage of things cause I haven't seen it for sale yet. Other than used or from the junkyard you can't get these bushings.

Spinning pies like wheels.

Define "IRS mount". It sounds like you're describing a bracket, not the mounts.

Pictures?
