Odd squeaking noise when e-brake is pulled

I hear a very noticable, very reproduceable noise from the rear wheel / suspension (especially the driver side). This squeaking noise is produced when and ONLY when:

1) e-brake is pulled up
2) when I stand up / sit down

I took it to the dealership, at first they thought the noise came from the shocks, so they put in brand new shocks, but the noise is still there.

Since the noise is only heard when e-brake is pulled up, I suspect that the rear caliper is not clamping the rotor tight enough, leaving room for possible rubbing movements, hence the noise?

You guys care to pitch in and suggest possible causes (and solutions)?
