speaking of rear calipers...
I had the same problem on my car. On one side, I was able to punch out the remains of the broken spring (from the outside). On the other side, no luck. But drilling another hole just a few milimeters away did the trick. That spring is easily bent with pliers.
Now, I have to do the same job on my car : rear discs, pads and calipers. I have all the parts here, but the rebuilt calipers I got from Rockauto are steel where the stock OEMs are aluminium. They look the same, and EPC shows the same part numbers for both the FWD (with vented discs) and the XWD. For us in the rust belt, steel calipers are more durable than aluminium units so its not a bad thing. When did they change from steel to aluminium?
