Engine mount bracket?

So today one of the motor mount brackets on my car decided to tear itself in two. This did not seem like much of a problem until I started looking for the part and it does not seem to exist.

The bracket that comes up when you search is what I would describe as the upper bracket. Which is #2 in the picture. My broken one is the lower one which is positioned on the other side of and attached to part #7.

From what I could tell the bracket is sandwiched between the subframe cross member and the frame of the car.

Does anyone have any idea what this part would be called or where I could find one?

When I get off work I plan to start taking things apart so I can get a better idea of what the part is and maybe throw up a pic of it.

I found out that this is the front sub-frame. I got a friend w/ a welder to come over and used a hoist to get it into position. I also found out that this is a common problem and they make reinforcement kits. Also you can not easily get a new front sub-frame they are mostly refurbished or used.

i think that is the actual motor mount, not a bracket.
