Constant squeeking from drivers side rear wheel

I just bought a 2003 grand jeep cherokee larado. I has a constant loud squeek in the driver's side rear wheel. One mech. replaced rotor, brakes 2X, brake kit w/springs; still squeeking. One mech. said bent axle shaft, nobody else believes this. Another said problem w/after market rotor & something about needing to mic out a whole? And another said maybe prob. w/e-brake. So far spent $400 and still have problem.

Also parking brake all froze up as well as rotors etc. Est. cost of repairs, $ 1883.00. Going to try to get dealership to help. No vibration just sl. flightiness. Boy did he see us coming!

    Thanks for trying.

I have to continuously replace calipers on my jeep, what is the problem?

wonder if the rotors are too slim. If this happens the brakes get too hot as the rotor radiates away the heat. If too hot the brakes could wear out faster.

Replaced both axles and axle boots still having loud noiseo right side

2003 grand cherokee ! WJ body. jeep.
why not take it to a real shop and ask them to find the true cause.
in our shop we have an electronic stethoscope ( a $50 tool) t
that finds causes, easy.
and for sure LOCATION. (if R/F then it is., so look only there)
bad wheel bearings, bad rotors. bad brakes, caliper guides seized.
loose hub nuts.
bad shock. or falling off>?
cracked wheel. damaged suspension parts, loose ball joints.
a good mech, can flex these parts, parked.
and find what is loose? find one, or go to a suspension shop
or a pro brake shop.
NOISE, only moving?
only bouncing?
only under power ?
only coasting?
in any gear. ?
only turning.?
what?? hopeless for me to guess, id be hands all over car.
see why posting here is useless, reason, we cant drive it and hear it.!!! there are 3000 parts on the car, any can make noise.

see suspension here.

Our 1993 jeep grand cherokee has a very loud squeeking coming from the driver side front tire.

First thing to look at is the wear on the brake pads. Most pads have a wear indicator on the and when the pad gets to the replacement point it will emit a very loud more of a high pitched noise to inform you to a brake inspection.

it could be,, check the brake line going to the brake and see if it has play ,, also, it could be the caliper isn't flowing , once they get overheated the grease in them ( the slide pins) tend to get stuck ,, pull the caliper apart and clean all the old grease of and re lube them

Drivers side rear wheel hums constantly. The brakes and drums are fine. How difficult is the hub replacement?

there is no "hub", the shaft will need to be removed and a new bearing installed. I would not attempt this in my back yard, consult a repair shop familiar with your jeep.
