    if it's the mount no the axle, 4WPW has them, don't know about the frame mounts though.

    This happend on my 89. The top mount on the frame cracked so many times it could not be fixed anymore. My local Chevy dealer had the mount. It is rivited in. You will to drill the rivits out and use bolt to replace it. Use the self locking nuts. You will not want to have to re-tighten it again. This is not a fun job. Good luck.
