Default bad wheel bearing?

I have a 2005 chrysler 300, 3.5 L engine (RWD) I bought the car at 180,000 miles. I have had it for 2 years. Only put 24,000 miles on it. Within the last 1,000 miles I have replaced both front struts, both stabilizer links, both outer rods, and the right inner rod. A rotor on the front passenger side. I also put ceramic pads on and I still have a squeal. I'm down to caliper sticking or a bad wheel bearing.

Symptoms are: high pitched squealing when not breaking. Squealing is literally comes and goes while braking, not braking, turning and not turning. My rotor had a deep groove in the back on passenger side. Replaced that and I'm still experiencing the same sounds after replacing brake pads 3 times within 10,000 miles. Maybe the caliper is sticking but I feel it is worse than that. It squeals so randomly it's hard to tell. It usually happens after a low left also happens when I'm not turning ( driving for minutes without braking) I could be going 55 for 2 minutes without braking and it randomly starts, only stops when slightly press on breaks. Sometimes goes away when I slam on brakes. It can't be rotors or pads...have also applied (stop brake squeal lol which was a joke) if you've had the same problems I would appreciate feed back. If you haven't than I pray you're a certified mechanic because I've had too many mechanics tell me multiple things only too spend thousands of dollars in a month to still hear the same sound. Also I just replaced rotors today and it made no difference in the squel, still same scenario and still the same sound. Makes me think it's bearings. What do you think?
