Unless you need the bracket (ie wear, damage), there's no reason to get it.

Yeah, they're easy enough to take off and you have to remove them to machine the rotors on a bench lathe.

you should always replace calipers in pairs. They are really not all that expensive and worth it since you will be bleeding the brakes anyhow.

Well did em this weekend both sides . The only issue was a wrong caliper in the right box brake line bolt no fit ,two stores later to get the right one. Put on drilled and slotted rotors , tried the backs coulndt get em off lots of corrosion sprayed em ,try again another day.

Before you go to the expense of rpl the cailper chk to make sure it's not just the slider pins. I found this problem on my 03 the fix I did was to remove the slider and twist out the rubber boot. I then took some emery cloth and clnd the rust build up.I then bought some cailper slider grease and lubed both the boot and the pins this fixed my truck but if yours are both free then it is the caliper

Thanx didnt think of that , actually not sure if this was the problem but the caliper was placed over a mashed pad guide so it wasn't on straight. FYI got new calipers at advanced auto the internet price was 41.00 the in store price was 74 or 75 , they had to do a price match , got em for 41.
