Default 96 olds 88 subframe bushings

I have a 96 olds and having a hard time finding anyone to fix the bushings on the rear of the subframe. I also will need the bushing kit and can not find one that does not cost a mint. I was told by 2 garages to just junk the car, but I love my car! It really does not look like a problem that can not be fixed? Any suggestions??

Two things you can do here. Find a dead car and borrow it'* parts, or find a dealership buddy to buy them at employee cost.
