These parts are under a lot of stress, don't cheap out or you will be doing the job again soon.
Do you have those? Do you notice any vibration?

Watch/read a couple of DIYs before you attempt the job, so you'll know what tools you need.

I have UUC polyurethanes. I pressed them into my old brackets. Love them so far, absolutely solid with no vibration. My problem before I changed them was exactly like OP where the car would jerk to the side when the brakes were first applied.

That's the classic symptom.
