What is the name of the thin aluminum "clips"? that hold the brake pads in the caliper. After market pads do not come with these "clips." Is it OK to reuse them? If not, where can I buy them?

I believe you are referring to the "Brake Pad Retainers". They locate the pads within the caliper at each end. It is OK to reuse them if they haven't been grossly damaged (stepped on or such during pad changing. If really badly damaged, I believe they can be purchased as part of a caliper rebuild kit. As long as the pads are securely retained by the clips they are good to use.

Later ... Larry S.
