Is there a cheap workaround?

I had the same thing happen to my 92 ranger. The radiator support was rusted in half and the bushings were destroyed to the point that they were pushed through the frame mounts. I welded a large washer over the frame mount surface, and then installed hockey pucks, one upper, and one lower for the bushings. The pucks, bolts, washers cost me less than ten dollars. It's been 3 years since I fixed it, and the pucks are still holding fine with no cracking. If you have the funds, buy a proper kit for it. But for people like myself on a college student budget, the hockey puck fix works.
