New Rotors, New brakes and new calipers. Right wheel still chirping.

I recently replaced my rotors, brakes and calipers after having a caliper seize up on me. It's been chirping like the pads are bad but they are not. The chirp turns into a squeal when the brakes are applied and I think I hear a clicking. Could it be the u joint? The pad has begun to wear more on the inside than the outside. There is no contact with the dust cover. Any suggestions? I'm hoping it's not a bent axle.

I would look at your rotors and see how they look. I replaced a the rotors on my wifes Honda Pilot and had the same thing happen to me. The rotor was pitting and even changed color on half the rotor. I returned the rotor for a new one and everything is fine now. Good Luck.

You might want to check your brake hoses , it can cause uneven brake pad wear also cause your calipers to stick or not open all the way causing the chirp or squeal
