Default Bad Brake Squeal

A few months ago I replaced the front brakes on my '09. Mine were completely shot so I put some EBC Sport rotors (the dimpled and slotted ones) and the Green 7000-series pads. The old brakes had gotten so bad that one piston had been shoved out of it's sleeve on the right caliper so the right side got a new caliper as well.

The new brakes have a few thousand miles on them now and I've got a bad squeal that sounds like it's coming from the left side. Is that normal for this brake setup? Should I have put a new caliper on the left side as well?

While, I am one of those that believes in replacing things in pairs. Calipers are not one of them, unless if you go aftermarket. If you stuck with OEM, then I would start by spraying the rotor and caliper down with brake cleaner. As it is the easiest to do. If it continues check your pads and see if there is any unusual wear on the pads. Actually, you can do that at the same time when you clean them.
