Car is a 2004 V70 2.5T fwd.

About 4 months ago I put all new brakes on- upgraded to T5 front rotors and installed 4 new rotors as well as ceramic pads and stainless lines at all 4 corners. Right away the drivers rear was squeaking at low speed and only when moving forward. When the rear is in the air I can spin both wheels by hand but I can replicate the squeak on the driver side. As I've driven it more there is a reasonable amount of dust coming off that brake, so it's clearly dragging ever so slightly. I've bled all 4 wheels and that one in particular numerous times and the squeak has gotten better, but it's still there. My assumption is that I have a bad caliper. Has anyone had a similar experience, or have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I see nothing wrong with your diagnosis, probably should go ahead and swap the caliper.

Thanks. My only other thought is if it was the proportioning valve in the rear somehow not releasing, but a caliper certainly seems more likely.

One other thing to try, pull the handbrake a click or two and see if the squeaking goes away. It might just be that the shoes in there need to be moved around.
