WTB: SVT DVR. Side rear caliper(slider frozen)

Well just found out that the other slider of my rear caliper has frozen. Is this a big problem? I've had Ford fix the other side already when it was under warranty. Same one too, the lower slider has frozen stuck. Strange because after the first incident, I went around and greased them all to be sure it wouldn't happen again. The rubber boots looks intact and were properly installed.

So I'm just looking for the part that mounts to the rear hub along with the sliders. Don't need the whole assembly.

Thanks

Close; I was able to knock it out with a screwdriver and put the slider in my drill and spun it like a lathe and got all the rust off with some fine grit sand paper. Cleaned out the inside of the slider with q-tips and alcohol and it works great again.

Glad there wasn't much more corrosion.
