Chirp-chirp-chirping rear brakes- HELP PLEASE!!!!

Hey guys. I have a built 8.8 that I picked up last year. It came out of a wrecked Saleen. It came with an Eaton posi, 4.10's, Moser 31 splines and an SVO rear girdle. The shop owner that I bought it from took it apart, looked at all of the internals, judged it in perfect condition and put it back together for me.

After I put it in my car, the left wheel had a speed-related "chirp-chirp-chirp" sound (the faster I go the faster the chirping is). Took the brakes apart and found that the one of the clips that goes on either side of one of the pads is being worn away (1/2 gone after a month), so I know that is what is making the noise. If I regrease everything, it goes away for a couple of days and then comes back.

I've replaced the caliper, the pads, the rotor, and even the axle on that side and it still chirps.

Anyone have any ideas on how I can figure this thing out? It's been driving me nuts for over a year. Maybe the housing is slightly bent from the Saleen accident, although it looks fine. Thanks.
