Small "brackets" inside brake caliper

Hi, I'm new to the forum and to get my car safetied I have to replace the brake pads and rotors. When I took out the pads, there were 2 "brackets" made of sheet metal that held the pads in. I bent them pretty badly, does anyone know where i can find them and if i need to replace them?

Get a new brake pad hardware kit.

Scrub off all the rust from the caliper bracket before installing the new brake pad hardware.

Ask for brake pad hardware for the equivalent Subaru (either Impreza or WRX).

usually they come with new pads when you buy pads
