Either disconnect the trany end of the cable, or wedge it forward, or 
have a helper hold it forward while you rehook it.  To rehook it you 
have to remove the two bolts that attach it to the side of the 
tunnel, pull it out, and pull the eye out where you can get the hook 
into it again.

Live and learn.

Bleeders are necessary on the top, AND there are cutouts on the face 
of the pistons that must face a certain way WRT (with respect to) the 
brake rotor rotation.  If you mount the calipers on the wrong sides 
(upside down) you won't be able to bleed the air out of the system 
AND the pads won't wear parallel.  Yes it makes a difference.  Live 
and learn.
