When I did mine (1991 300SL ) I had no problem pushing the pistons in with a very large flat blade screw driver. There was ample clearance to install the new pads. As I recall, the piston can be moved in almost flush with the caliper surface. I would not suggest that you force the new pad in. Have you cleaned off all the surface rust? I wonder if the pads you have are thicker than originals? Did the old pads have shims? Do the new pads have shims? Don't forget the anti squeel paste.
Resistance is Futile.
