No offence but are you certain it's not repairable. I only ask because I am just in the process of reinstalling mine in my 408. It was badly corroded (to holes) in the area where the upper wishbones fulcrum brackets sit - basically they weren't attached to the subframe any more. The attached pic shows some of the damage after the subframe had been acid washed before welding.

I was fortunate, the rest of the subframe - front rear, bottom, etc. was ok. Anyway, if you're in the UK, I would try Classic Bristol Car Parts and Spencer Lane Jones first.

Good luck.
