Without seeing the bits for myself it is hard to work out but I would stick the old ones on for now and double check.
Who did you buy the calipers from?

The notches on the caliper face - are they the same or slightly different? If they're the same then just align them vertically so the slot goes around the pin on the back of the pad. If the notches are different (one extends further towards the centre of the piston face), then they have to be aligned one up, one down on either side (I can't remember which side is which but it tells you in Haynes).
Have you adjusted the handbrake at all? It's definitely a job for ramps as you need to get right underneath and undo the heatshield screws and slide it back for access - don't need the exhaust itself off. You need (iirc) a 6mm spanner and a 14mm deep socket (don't quote me on the sizes!). Adjust the cable so that the handbrake levers at the rear calipers are both within 1mm of their respective stoppers. It's easier with two people, tbh. One under the car adjusting, and one at the back checking the adjustment.
