Default Replacing Airbags in an Outback

Hi all, my new outback came to me with blown airbags. Hit a parking block and they blew.

So, I'm wondering what all is involved with replacing the airbags properly? Both airbags are a given, but what else? The control module? How about the sensors on the front of the car?

Thanks

The US auto companies value a human life at $200K.
If the airbag replacement is not covered by insurance and
it will cost you, say, $400 in labor to have a shop do it, then
you should only DIY this job if
the likelihood of your screwing up this job and then getting into a serious accident is less
than
400/200,000 = 1 chance in 500.

33,000 highway fatalities each year with 200K (?) drivers gives a base rate for fatalities of 1 in 6 per year.
NHTSA may publish the numbers for injuries but I've forgotten it, it's higher of course, and it's less certain than fatalities. This, because not too many people can fake death but a bunch can fake injuries.

Alright anyone else that doesn't sound like a progressive commercial?
