I went to check out the subframes (bare steel still) I still have yet to install and it appears that when my place got flooded when a pipe burst on a toilet in the place above me they got some rust on the surface. I need to look more closely but I believe it also got some on the insides of the tubes. I'd imagine I can sand off the stuff on the outside, but not much I can do about what's inside.

Will these be OK or should I buy new ones? I'd rather not go through the hassle and money of putting these on just to have them rust out from the inside in a few years.

Get a wire plumbers brush or something and snake inside the tubing. Then squirt some WD-40 or something in them.
