Well, yes and no!
If you are referring to what I will be calling the "A" frame, which holds the strut and the wheel and ball joint, etc., that part is replaceable.
If, however, you are speaking of the part that the "A: frame bolts to, here is the only way I know to fix it cheap.
I had a '97 Sable and the front end was smashed. I found a salvage yard, actually a crush yard, that sold me the WHOLE front end of the car for $ 125. You can cut whatever you want off of this and weld it to whatever you need fixed.
A crush yard is in the business of crushing cars, so they sell parts and sections of cars a whole lot cheaper that a junk yard.
I am guessing you may live up north where rust from road salt is a problem, and I don't know if cheap car sections are available or not.
I know in Indiana, they strip cars right down to the bare bones before they crush them. Maybe you could fine one like that that you could cut a hunk off of cheaply.
Be blessed.

Is it a big job to replace radiator

removing the fan shroud is the biggest pain in the ***. other than that it is just a matter of draining the antifreeze and disconnecting the hoses. some radiators have screws that mount the radiator to the frame.

I need to know where the windshield fluid box is in my 2000 mercury sable

go to the passenger side of the car, to the front. just in front of the wheel well, is the reservoir. Only the neck of the bottle sticks up. If you have to replace this, you will have to remove the passenger front tire, to unbolt the reservoir. Its actually easier to replace mounted here. hope this helps, and please rate, helpful or not

How to replace a front motor mount on a 1993 Mercury Sable 3.0 V6

To change the right front motor mount on a mercury sable. 1. you will need a jack and 22mm and a 5/8 socket.
2. you want to place the jack under the catalyst converter or somewhere on the motor that will lift the motor separatly from the crossbar that the front mount is attached to.
3. apply a little lift to the jack raising the car(3 or 4 hydraulics jack lifts).
4. using the 22 mm socket wrench take the bottom nut off the mount which is located under the right side of the crossbar.
5. using the 5/8 socket remove the top bolt that attaches the mount to the motor.
6. raise the jack 2 or 3 more times( giving you more room to move the old mount out).
7 . remove the old mount paying close attention to the way it is positioned, being sure not to put the new mount in wrong.
8. apply the new mount.
9. apply the top bolt and tighten .
10. lower the jack until the mount is seated correctly onto crossbar.
11. apply bottom nut and tighten.
12. glad i could help!

97 sale when i put it in reverse i lose powwer steering and my radio.

Look under your car and check each side for a big washer with a rubber mount to the body. It almost sounds like the frame mounts are loose and the drivetrain is separating from the body in reverse.
This could bind the wheels and pinch wires to things like the radio.
Years ago Ford had a problem with rust on the washers allowing the rubber parts to slip through.

Front right bushing is broken and causes a "popping" noise

call dealer with VIN number to see if your car is involved. ALso, please explain which bushing. Safety Recall 98S36 - Certain 1986 - 1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988 - 1994 Continental Vehicles - Sub-Frame Rear Plate Nut Replacement AFFECTED VEHICLES Certain 1986-1995 Taurus and Sable and 1988-1994 Continental vehicles that were originally sold or are currently registered in the following U.S. states and Canadian Provinces: U.S. States: Connecticut Delaware District of Columbia Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Maine Maryland Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Missouri Nebraska New Hampshire New Jersey New York Ohio Pennsylvania Rhode Island Vermont Virginia West Virginia Wisconsin Canadian Provinces: Manitoba New Brunswick Newfoundland Nova Scotia Ontario Prince Edward Island Quebec REASONS FOR RECALL The body mounts on the rear corners of the sub-frame that support the engine and transmission may separate. This can occur if the lower retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut becomes severely corroded from long term exposure to road salts and retention of moisture in the mounts. This corrosion can weaken the retainer plate of the mount or the retaining plate nut severely enough to allow the bolt head to pull through the washer or out of the nut. Should both rear mounts separate, the rear of the sub-frame will drop and steering may suddenly become difficult. This could result in an accident. SERVICE ACTION To correct this condition, dealers will replace the attaching bolts, plate nuts and the reinforcement plates on the bottom of the sub-frame rear body mounts, on all affected vehicles.
