Vibration&Squeaking coming from right rear suspension assembly

Hi,

I got in a car accident 5 months back where car hit a wall on the rear right side. Rim cracked and I'm sure the suspension assembly was damaged as the shop replaced it.

Ever since the replacement, when I lightly brake, the assembly will vibrate(you can hear and feel it). You can also hear it. But when enough braking force is applied it will stop and brake normal with no noise or vibration. The vibration isnt really bad enough to be dangerous, even when im pushing in mountains.

comparing the two sides, it looks like when they replaced it, they installed with a different brake shield (that metal plate behind the rotor).

I've brought it back in 3 times and they cant figure it out. Does anyone have any thoughts on what this issue could be?

They could've replaced the whole assembly and put a junkyard rotor on there. Maybe that rotor is warped? Just make sure everything is tight.

What exactly was replaced and what was not? Rotors, calipers, control arms, struts, hub assembly??? Have your rotors cut if you can find a place. They sound like they are warped. If you cannot have them cut, replace them.
