Brakes churping

I installed brand new Powerstop Z23 rotors and pads in front and rear on my 2015 JKU. Everything has been great for 3 mos.

I was in LA plowing through major potholes. Later that day, my rear passenger wheel starts to chirp. It doesn’t do it when brake is applied, only when it’s coasting.

What could it be?

I predict that it is a bent rear axle flange.

If you tossed a weight from a wheel and knocked it out of balance it often will chirp too.
