Default 1997 Buick Lesabre Custom Subframe Mounts/Bushings, Washers and bolts

Ok I have a 97 Buick Lesabre that was pretty much given to me. It has just under 73k on it. Brought it to my mechanic who is a good friend of mine and we put it up on the lift to see what we needed. Then we noticed that one of the rear subframe washers was completely missing on the passengers side. There are two one toward the outside of the car and one about 6 inches from it toward the middle which is the one that the washers is gone. Problem is i can not find the washers or mounts anywhere online or at any autoparts store. Anybody else had this issue with the subframe mounts in the rear and are they the same as all the other GM cars with the 3800 engine?

yeah i live in the Boston area so we get snow in the winter and i am sure the previous owner who were an older couple didn't drive it too often but there'* not much rust under the car at all just those washers have some rust and the one washer is completely rusted out. So i need to replace that right away but the others arent too far behind from having to be replaced either.. the bushings all look ok and still don't show cracking at all. I just found the washer at the dealership for one is $25 which is crazy and $6 for the bolt and $30 for the lower bushing and $25 for the upper bushing which all together make one set. there are a total or four sets on the rear and two sets on the front which can get real expensive. I wish someone who knows anywhere you can but them together as a set or a full set of 4 for the rear so I can just get them all done at once as opposed to buying all the washers and bolts which would be like $500 just for a few pieces of rubber, some washers and some bolts. its craziness

Are these what you are looking for?
If so AutoZone and other places should also have them, but they are probably 15.00 to 16.00 more expensive, at Advance Auto they are anyway.
