I'm not able to find it online but I am looking for the two boxes that are welded to the body that your deck lid mounts to this is the box that has the slot for the rectangle rod and the threaded nut towards the front of the car both of mine are stress cracking in the front has broken loose in left side so I need to replace them are these available? If so who sells the best ones?

I have never seen those available aftermarket, but it doesn't mean somebody hasn't cloned them. you may end up having to either cut them out of an organ donor, or surgically remove yours and repair them.

Mika at Vertanen may be able to recreate some for you. He produces really high quality parts and may be able to recreate these if you can send him pictures.

Good luck.
