Toss the PBR pads and put in Textars. Blessed silence.

Aftermarket pads squeal like crazy on rear brakes.

If you are really attached to those pads, pull them, completely clean the slot in the caliper, and coat the rear and sides of the backing plate with antiseize. Put a tiny spot on the contact point of the antirattle spring and the pads, too, as well as where the pins run.

If this doesn't work you are going to have to go back to OEM pads.
