Rear brake headache

So my rear brakes on the driver side sound like they rub once per revolution until I hit higher speeds (or maybe I cannot hear it anymore). Then when I stop I hear a clicking catching clanking noise from the same location. I did my googling and found out about he caliper bracket and how it tends to wear, so I bought a new bracket and caliper only to have the same noises show back up after 100 miles or so. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I'm leaning toward bent axle shaft. I replaced on both sides the rotors and pads when I wasted money on a new caliper. This WJ only has 57K on it and no accidents. What's the best way to check for a bent axle shaft by ones self?

I had a very similar problem as you with my nearside rear and it turned out to be the wheel bearing that was causing the noise.

Bought it from my grand parents after they stopped driving. Truly a car that a little old lady drove to church and to the grocery. Its two wheel drive for now, but hat will soon change. I have already acquired most of what i need for the conversion- 4wd O/D tailhousing, np242, 44a rear w/ variloc, 30 front (both 3.73), 2.5 inch lift, shift selector, front and rear dive shafts. You may wonder why I'm askig about my rear axle when I have these parts already..Well, its hot and humid here in TN. This is a fall project for me, but I'd like to drive the jeep until I do the swap. We'll see how it all goes!
