Exclamation Brake Caliper Rattling/Drag noise

hey i have an 87 300zx z31 turbo i bought the car a few months back and recently i came across this problem shorty after doing a full brake job where my rear right brake caliper started dragging and making this loud rattling noise. So i ended up replacing it and that solved my dragging brake problem, but then the rattling noise came back. Ive been trying to find out but i had no luck. Have any of you experienced This? If So can you offer any suggestions or solutions to my problem.

I have a similar issue - driver side.

Dragging. I pulled the rear wheel to find my nearly new ceramic brake pads just about totally used up. (guess that explains the drop in MPG lately).

Calipers are reman'd units that I installed back in December, so I'm hoping it's not those. You can bet I'll be back at the parts store getting a warranty replacement if it is. I just hate bleeding brakes, and the wife bitches when she has to come out and pump the pedal for me.

If it's a sticking E brake cable, I'm hoping it releases as soon as I disconnect it. It's been 110 degrees plus, and I just discovered this when I got home from work yesterday so I'll tear into it this weekend.

Also have a newly torn CV boot No one, and I mean NO ONE has reman'd CV shafts for this so I guess I'm redoing the boots too. The torn boot made a mess under the car that'll take a can of brake cleaner to get cleaned up....all over the muffler too, so it stinks.
