Talking Insane Squeaking

I have a 92 Dodge Spirit. When I travel at low speeds, under 30mph, there is a high squeak that comes from the passenger side; I believe it is coming from the rear. The squeak is definately a metal on metal sound. It is intermittent, pulsing...not continuous. I have replaced the frt disc and pads, and the rear shoes and drum. And it still does it. The squeeking is louder the slower I go. The 'pulse' of the squeek is slower at slow speeds, faster at fast speeds. It appears to disappear above 40mph. Turning does not make any difference, it is all based on speed. If I apply the brake pedal, even slightly, the noise disappears entirely. Note: when I replaced the rear drum and shoes, I kept the old bearing and hub assembly (that is held by the lugnuts to
the drum). Thank you!!!!!! Thank you!!!

Checked out alldata.com, but that didn't give any good ideas.

Did I mention that the first 5 minutes of driving, it's quiet?

Anyway, it still is going away with the slightest bit of brake pressure.

Still frustrated.

There's a rear track bar that can cause rubbing/metal on metal sounds like that. My friend's Dodge Shadow had that issue.
