I bouth the cross drilled rotors and ceramic pads for my car, I removed the rear driver side caliper but:

1- accidentaly removed the return spring for the emergency brake and now I can't put it back in (to hard to return back into place)
2- I can't push the caliper's piston back to put new pads in it, I know I need a special compression tool to push the piston back, but where can I buy this tool?

Do you
have the same problem?

Yours requires a tool to "screw" the pistons back in. Autozone rents them out, and refunds your money when the tool is returned.

this will show ho to retract the caliper

Remount the caliper, then put the spring back on...

How do I put the spring back on, it's really hard, is there a special trick or tool to do it?

Remount the caliper, then use a prybar to comress it, hold it in far enough to reattach the brake cable.
