Default Where to get misc. little brake bits?

With all my pad changes over the last few years I have lost pretty much all the shims, spring retainers, spring spreaders that go with the stock pads. Buying aftermarket you don't always get these little bits. Without them my Carbotech's clunk within the caliper.

Any suggestions of where to get the little tin bits and pieces? Is that something any normal parts store would have? Dealer? I asked at one parts store but the middle school dropout mouthbreathing gap toothed drooler helping me had no idea. "um, don't those come with the pads?"

Autozone can get em'. Ask the person to look up 'brake hardware'.

ordered from finishline/rosenthal. With shipping it was still less than local and much less than from rockauto which Emilio suggested. Thanks Brain.

can rosenthal get sport brake spring thingies? We looked for them for a friend, and there was no success.

I didn't find the parts I needed on the website either. I emailed them and they sent a link to the page needed but I couldn't find navigation in the site to it. give em a jingle or email and I'm sure they will hook you up.

If it's in the FSM he can get it. He works out of a Mazda dealer.
