Maybe this is the ticket.
C clamp method (when I use it) works fine for me. bigjae's tool won't work on OEM brakes since the caliper is one piece with no removeable bridge.

The method I usually use is to just pull the caliper toward the outside. It's not instantaneous but it works. I can get full compression both ways.
