Brake issues

i have a 2011 with 70k on it, bought it with 55k. ever since i bought it, it had the lightest squeaking noise from passenger rear wheel, only rarely. over time it got a lot louder and was literally all the time, replaced the original pads which were still good, same thing again so replaced pads with top quality and here we are 5 months later with the loudest squeaking and its constant like a bad pully would sound. i can make the sound disappear for a short drive by cleaning the brakes and then it comes right back. replacing the rear passenger brake pad is a challenge because the caliper seizes up (after removal) and we had to rent a special tool to push it in because its so hard. (on the other calipers we just used some pliers). my question is has anyone heard of this or have any ideas as to what it could be. im done replacing brand new pads that arent even broken in when i replace them. no mechanic has found anything

Have you lubricated the caliper slides, pins, and backs of pads? Bled the brakes? If so, I wonder if that right rear caliper is bad.

Rotors may be glazed. The rear rotors will be a small pain to remove and have resurfaced, so find a shop that can resurface rotors while they are on the car.

Check to see if that side has any indication that it was struck, and therefor causing the caliper to bind slightly. Do the pads indicate a complete wear pattern? No indication that one pad is wearing more than the other? Or the front (or rear) of the pads are wearing more that the back side (or front side)?

Check the e-brake for correct operation on that side. On these year Mustangs, the e-brake operates the pads as well.

When you do brakes its best to resurface the rotors also and you have to pump the e brake after you finish the rear brakes

You said it yourself...caliper seizes up.
So the pads are not releasing sufficiently.
As BrewGuy said, replace the caliper.

As far as I am concerned, the calipers should be covered under the warranty. But that's only my opinion.
