I changed the rear brakes and rotors. Driver side rear outer brake pad was at <1. All the other pads on both sides were at 5. No issues with the job. But now something squeals only when I take a right hand turn. Anyone have any ideas on what could be the cause?

The pivot pins were pretty dry. I lubed them appropriately.

Maybe the dimple on the inner brake pad isn't sitting in the right spot on the caliper piston? Just doesn't make sense to me that I hear a squeal only when I steer to the right!

Check that pads are sitting correctly and not loose. Also the heat shield isnt making contact, unlikely but check. Try regreasing the caliper pins again. Keep a eye on your driver side caliper wear though, caliper may be sticking with uneven wear like you had.
