Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the shims at the brake pad contact areas were left off it would cause a rattle over bumps that goes away when the brake pedal is pressed. Worse case scenario would be that pads wore into the caliper brackets enough that the brackets will need to be replaced, which isn't a major repair.
What are they saying needs to be replaced?
