Be advised that the rear piston must be (turned) back into the caliper with a special service tool as it is on a ratchet for proper hand brake operation. You try to press it back in with a c-clamp and the ratcheting mechanism will be damaged costing big bucks.

You also have the option of buying rebuilt loaded calipers and they would just be a bolt on (but requires system bleeding).

You first to need to find factual repair information (shop/repair manual) and go from there.
