You may have thrown them all out by now since May of last year, however I would have saved the faucet if it was in good condition.  The other components do not always disassemble well and are not worth saving.

Somethings have more value at the scrap yard then in your storage room. you can sell to a scrap yard all types of metals.  You may not get much for a sink.....what i do is keep a separate garbage pale in the garage for such metals. Once it fills, i take it down to the yard and make a few bucks.  Good Luck

Most of the time it is better to replace all metal parts and retain plastic or pvc parts. That is a general rule. I have reused pvc several times, but metal almost always has corroded or lost it strength and needs to be replaced.
Supply lines made of copper, pvc, factory made covered with stainless mes can be reused, but change out any cone washer or other seals.
If the budget allows it change it all out, if not follow the above advice and good luck....ps check for leaks immediately and then 7 days after.

The plumbing pipes under the sink may fit the new one. The trap arms may need to be adjusted but you should have the old ones to compare. Other parts are best replaced to ensure that the new assembly fits tightly together. If replacing the faucet as well, I recommend installing the faucet assembly including the water lines on to the sink before placement.

Why do you want to save it? Donate it to building recycler. Chance are thay you'll never use it again unless your in the business or rehabing.
