Stop the SQUEAK

I've got an '04 GC Laredo 4X4 with a squeak. It's a rear drivers side. It only happens when driving forward or making a right turn. I don't get it in reverse or during a left turn. If I put the whole back end up I can tell it's coming from the rear drivers tire. I've replaced the caliper, pads and rotor. New rear bearings. When I had them pressed the machinist didn't mention any warp, and when I spin the wheels I don't see any wobble at all from the wheel. I've had it in various shops and noone has been able to come up with any solutions or suggestions. I'm really running out of ideas. Can anyone give me anything new that I haven't tried? Thanks in advance

Control arm bushings?

And your in the wrong section. This is the XJ smaller Cherokee section. You need the WJ GC section.

It also could be your swaybar. If you still have one remove it and see if the noise goes away. It worked for me and I can't tell any difference in handling.

I'm sorry about putting this in the wrong section. Also, thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, with the back end off the ground I can still hear the squeak when I spin the tires. The swaybar is to far to the rear and the control arms are to low for either of them to be causing the squeak. When I get my head by the wheel while it's spinning it really appears to be coming from the brakes, of which is all new. Does anyone else have any ideas, please? I'm losing my mind.

EDIT: Just a thought, but if it was a bent axle shaft, wouldn't it squeak in reverse as well as drive?

I wish. I just took it back apart to check that, too. And while it was apart again I re-greased the slide pins. That didn't help, either.
