Looking for referrals for recycling yards to get some rust-free parts
for my 97 Bonneville SE.

In particular, I can't find a Rear-Left Lower Control Arm and Rear Bumper Reinforcement Bar for local pick-up,
so since I'd have to pay for shipping, I might as well buy these rust-free (hopefully) from the southwest somewhere.

Thanks in advance.

I didn't find any local recycling yards that had my needed suspension parts, but I used car-part.com to find great parts at:

A-1 Auto Recyclers, Kirtland, NM 1-505-325-1994. My Rear Left Control Arm was only $45 +$25 S/H.

It arrived RUST FREE, about a week later, and even included the bushings and ball joint, which were in perfect condition! Later when I needed the Rear Right Control Arm, it arrived in the same great condition, but it cost me $15 more for S/H (Covid shipping increases, probably), but still a great deal because it saved me from buying & installing new bushings. However, its ball joint didn't move smoothly, so I borrowed a ball-joint press from Autozone and replaced it for cheap money at RockAuto.com.
