Default Mazdaspeed breaks overheating?? HELP!!

So, my 2006 Speed 6 passenger side rear brakes are getting scorching hot, so hot you can barely even touch the wheel itself. the rest if them are normal temps. Though it was a siezed caliper, but I replaced caliper, caliper bracket, pads, and the rotor wouldnt be a reason they're getting hot, so I'm at a loss as to what it could be... Any suggestions as to why one brake would get hotter than the rest if it's nothing to do with the actually brake pads, caliper, or bracket???

Did you replace the slide pins and lube them with silicone grease like Sil-Glyde? Did you lube the spots where the brake pads slide? The E-brake could be sticking on that side. I'd Jack the car up and see if the wheel spins freely. Engage and disengage the e-brake and see if the wheel still spins freely. Or maybe the new caliper you got is no good and sticking. A bad wheel bearing can generate heat but it's pretty easy to tell the difference since the bearing will howl.

The new caliper and bracket came pretty lubed and put together, no I dont grease the backs of the pads, I never have and I've never had an issue.. I dont know any of my mechanic friends that use the stuff either.. I'm just at a loss. Like it wouldnt be the booster for a single wheel would it? Or maybe the ABS pump? Idk. Just so lost as to what would cause this.

Lubing the back of the pads is personal preference but the sides of the pads that slide in the bracket should be lubed and the slide pins need the be lubed with something compatible with rubber. Since your new caliper came with slide pins pre lubed then it doesn't seem likely that the slide pins sticking is your issue. If I had to guess I think something's wrong with the parking brake cable keeping it from disengaging on that side. I'd check the parking brake before the hydraulics. You should check that the old overheated rotor is in ok shape if you managed to distort it it could bind up.
