I believe Rockauto would have most of the parts. IIRC from estimates on the 97 (I know..) around 3-400

Be carefull about changing the complete stainless steel pipes with regular zinc coated steel. Otherswise you will be going to 3 year replacement intervals when it rots out.
IMO its best to keep the original stainless pipe if its still solid and have a new cat welded to it.
Sometimes the rattle is just the heat shield that rotted out. Get under there and check it out.
