Rear brake dragging

Hey fellas...I lifted the rear wheels of my 2016 rubi off the ground in search of a squeak..and found the squeak was coming from the rear brake caliper...when I spin the wheels, the the caliper seems has a wobble like it’s warped...all the bolts are tight...is this a common problem? Is there an adjustment I can do to relieve some of the friction while I’m cruising?...1,064 miles on the bike...and most of those miles have been easy trail riding in Colorado... thanks in advance for the help

How bad is the wobble? Theres no real adjustment to be done besides for the park brake cable. If everything is clean and park is releasing correctly it's normal to have some brake noise on these.

The wobble is very very minimal...it’s probably been there all along..and I just noticed it now🏻 I pulled the complete brake assembly off and apart and made sure it’s clean and free of dirt...my brother has an identical quad so I checked look at his and found out it was doing the same thing...so it must be normal lol
