Question Rear brake replacement on 97 Taurus GL

Yo guys, car is a 97 Taurus GL with 4 wheel disc. I need to replace the rear pads and rotors. To do this, do I need to disconnect the parking brake cables, etc. from the rear calipers in order to get them out of the way enough to replace the rotors?

How about compressing the rear caliper piston? Will a c-clamp work or is this one that screws in?

Thanks!
