SG Caliper Brackets and Spindle/Knuckle Hubs

Hey everyone, I am looking to replace the rusty front caliper brackets and front spindle/knuckles with hubs on my 2007 Forester X. Not looking for "beauty queen" parts, just ones without rust. Also looking for a cargo cover in tan. I am located in North Carolina.
Thanks!

I have all of that brake/spindle stuff off of my 2005 X, taken off whole when I did the Brembo swap.

Knuckles with hubs and good wheel bearings.
Caliper brackets.

Also calipers with pads, rotors, OEM tie rod ends, OEM ball joints, OEM lower control arms (if interested in any of that)

All from a Texas only driven 2 owner car. There is no rust.

Would the lower control arms ship to the UK?
A half serious question, after seeing a well looked after 2007 WRX in my local independent workshop yesterday with the infamous rusted through/ broken lower front arm. First one I've seen in the flesh! They were lucky, it let go at low speed.
Apparently £270 pounds each side, for the new arms only.
The front control arms on my 2003 forester looks sound, under the surface corrosion but I'm now a bit cautious.

I am sure that they could ship, not sure how cost effective it would be.

Rough estimate on international shipping of the arms is $175 USD, without customs, import, taxes and duties (paid by recipient)

Thanks for looking that up, was hoping for a lot less! I buy b2 squid fishing lures from the us, and if I keep the order including shipping below 130 pound (160 dollars approx) I avoid Import duty, just pay 20% VAT (tax) and a small handling charge but they are light and fit a FedEx Jiffy bag which is a relatively cheap way to ship overseas. Think I need to start looking for a cheap EU source to have a couple in and put by in the shed.
Thanks sleepsate, I need a cheaper option though. Must be good living in a salt road free, rust free state.

Start buying STI aluminum LCA's and rear links. No more worries for those.
Just need a nice user from eBay thats willing to ship.

Is that Impreza or fSTi lower arms and links? Cheers, I am still learning.
After 16 years Subaru ownership the questions change over time, just like it does bringing up kids!

Impreza ones are all aluminum, not sure on the fSTI bits.
Either would work.
