1975 280c front end

I need to do a complete rebuild of my 280c front end
does anybody know where i can mabey find an aftermarket lower Rt/Lft control arm that is not going to cost me $500 a piece?
Im trying to locate all the parts myself and have a shop install them.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

On these...

older chassis, the control arms should be rebuild-able. New bushings and ball joint and away you go. Are yours damaged to the extent you have to replace the entire unit?
