Default Torque Strut Mount question

Guys im new here and dont even own one of these cars, but a friend of mine has one and she does'nt want to get ripped off by one of these shops we have around here. Were in a small town so having the option to get different estimates at different places cant be done, so Im going to fix it hopefully.


So heres the question and it has been on here somewhere, I just cant find it. The torque strut mount is basically a motor mount that keeps the transmission and all steady when shifting. Well that part is hanging down under the car (03 V6 Mazda 6). That piece is all together and all bolts are accounted for from what I can see. I have not got this thing in the air yet, so thats why this question is being posted because I dont know what Im going to be looking at.

Heres the mount im talking about. Now my question is not with this part, but what is it connected to? The small end is still in tac and connected to where it needs to be. The big end is the part that is hanging, and whatever it was connected to is broken. That's what my question is.

What does this big end connect to?


Need to find that out so I can see if any autoparts stores around here have it in stock.


Thanks

I've never swapped one out myself but from those photos is looks like part of the frame. Hopefully someone here can confirm for you. Good luck.

Yea thats what im thinking. She said her sub-frame was cracked, but its been like that for a while. The pictures im looking at she sent me just puts the finishing touches on it. If thats the case im thinking putting an entire sub-frame in the car would be what she needed.

That or someone would have to repair/ weld the frame to repair. Hopefully she can find a place to do it for a reasonable price.
