Are the brackets rusty? The brackets can actually rust and swell causing the pads not to fit. You can remove bracket shims and chip away rust scale to get them to fit.
Ok so the pads actually fit in the bracket, just the caliper will not go over the two?

Which after market pad are you using and what is the part number?
Different expert here. make sure that you have the inserts in the piston lined up with the tabs on the back of the pads so that they seat correctly
