02 ZX5 Cat bracket/exhaust bracket

I've been looking on here for a while at threads about cat brackets and figured I'd just ask to get a straight answer. I uploaded a picture of the bracket as well as the diagram from Ford: Link If needed, it's a 2.0 Zetec DOHC Auto.

Part numbers appear to be 5A204 Type D, E, F, and W520413-S309 and W520103-S403.

1. Do I even need this?
2. If yes, where do I get aftermarket parts? Having a hard time finding parts anywhere but the FordParts.com website.
3. Those parts cost way too much - can I use anything else?

Thanks guys.

No aftermarket part that I'm aware of.
You might not "need it". But I'm sure it alleviates stress from the manifold studs/bolts. Not having it may break manifold bolts.
I don't see why a good exhaust shop couldn't make something to work.

Follow-up:
The parts needed are on FordParts.com and I also found the front bracket on TascaParts.com - Tasca does NOT have the rear bracket as of now, as they say the part is discontinued. A few other places have these for a similar price, but not sure of the quality. Also, I have NOT fixed this part yet, so I can follow-up more once my shipment arrives!

FordParts.com has the following parts and prices, $8 2-4 day FedEx Shipping (up to 40#):
5A204 Type F (Front Bracket) - $55.90 ($37.93 for FF members)
5A204 Type D (Rear Bracket) - $77.17 ($52.37)
Flanged Nut (W520413-S309/HN1) - $4.00 ($2.34)

TascaParts.com had the 5A204 Type F for $37.28, $8 shipping per their site.

Hope this is able to help someone else with the same issue I had!
