Default Bent axle or caliper wont fully release

Can someone please explain to me what is causing this very annoying issue. I been having this problem where my car is making this loud brake squeal from the rear and i just changed the pads and rotors hoping that was the issue but it looks like it was not. Whenever i press on the brakes the noise goes away. I dont know how it can be a bent axle since the car never has a drag radial and i havent hit any curbs so someone please shed some light on this. It is really annoying me

Chock the front wheels, release the e-brake, and jack up the rear of thecar. Find out which side is binding. You should be able to slip a piece of paper between the rotor and brake pad (both inner and outer pad). If you can't then you found the side that is binding. If it's not binding and you still hear the sound, then it could be your differential or wheel bearing making the squeal.

i called the guy who did the rear pads and rotors and he said the caliper looked fine and he put some anti-seize on it.
