Default Need help finding parts for an Expedition

Alright, my Dad has a 2000 Expedition with the 5.4. The PO never took care of the underside very well evidently and he needs new lower rear control arms and a pinion flange for the rear. The only place i've been able to find them is the dealer for a crazy amount. I checked the common parts stores and Rockauto, but they didn't even have a listing. Are there any other places I could maybe take a look before breaking down to buy them at the dealer?

I think my dad went and ordered one already from the Dealer...

But, he is pretty pissed about it though. He went to a few junk yards for some others parts and happened to take a peak at a couple Expeditions and they all looked like they had similar issues/failures occur on them.

PMT Fabrication makes both upper and lower arms for waaay cheaper than the stock. I replaced both upper and lowers on my 98 Expy for about the same price of just the OEM uppers. Direct bolt in except I had to enlarge the top mounting hole for my upper arms.
