Default Question about engine cradle bushings

I was changing the tie rod ends on my LeSabre the other day, and noticed that the engine cradle had broken at one of the bushings. I would like to replace the cradle since the car itself is pretty good shape, and relatively rust free. I can pick another cradle up at the junk yard fairly cheap.

My question is are, are all 6 of the bushing the same size and everything? I would like to change the bushings as well. I've did some searching, and it appears that they are.

Thanks in advance

I believe the 4 in the rear are the same, and the two in the front are the same, but different than the other 4. There are bushing kits out there that have the complete package for everything.

Also be sure the engine cradle is the only rust of concern. Often when one goes, other parts of the car aren't too far behind

this is correct.. I changed some on my brothers a couple weeks ago... The 4 in the rear are the same, and the 2 up front are the same.

Thanks

Where can I find one of those kits at? All I'm coming up with are just single, or a pair of the bushings.

As far as the rust goes, I double checked, I'm certain that it is just the engine cradle, as the rest of the body looks good.
