Default Throttle Body Support Bracket

I noticed last week that both brackets are missing from my car...
The front one seems more important, the back I think just holds part of the wire loom.

From the little info I've found, I think they stopped putting it on 2nd generation cruisers, I haven't seen another one to verify. It just seems like there is too much play at the throttle body. I also can't seem to find where the bottom of the bracket bolts to, maybe the back bracket behind the throttle body that holds the harness, maybe something is missing from the valve cover..?? Seems like something else is missing also.
Can you tell me or take a few pics of the 2 brackets.

This is the first time I have seen or noticed this bracket? The throttle body only has 3 bolt that attaches it to the intake manifold. I always thought this was an oversight on someones part?

I am not sure how much good it really does to begin with. Personally if it was not there I would not be going out of my way to get one.

The important thing is removing for service the throttle body to do multiple installation fastener tightening steps to prevent throttle body damage.

Just make sure the throttle body bracket itself is not broken. These have a habit of breaking on the NA engines.

Anybody have a good support bracket available? Chrysler has discontinued supplying the part. It is #4891407AC or #4891407AD (latest available), and I could sure use one for my 2003 2.4 non-Turbo. I removed the intake to replace spark plugs and upper ends of both upper grommet openings are broken off.

As salvage yard is going to be your best bet. PT Cruisers are extremely common in salvage yards and are sometimes the most common type of car there. So finding replacement bracket should be very easy.
