Early 2001 GS front control arms

So I've researched to find that the early '01 models came with a different font control arm that the rest of the year. Basically I have the early model, and the previous owner bought a control arm for the later models, and bolted it in. The rear bushing/bracket Is only held in by one bolt because you can't line the holes up for the 2nd. So the original bracket that holds the bushing to the frame is missing. After hours of searching I found the part number on Mitsubishi Parts Source. I ordered it ($5) and today received an email from them stating they don't have it, can't find it, and no dealer in the country carries it. Anyone know where I could possibly find one? Or would I have to get it custom made?

Are you referring to these parts: MR297476 and MR297477 (left and right are different parts)?

I found a couple websites that don't say they are out of stock, although I did find one that said they were discontinued. You could also try ebay.
