Soemtimes the back drum brakes ahve to be squared off to the drum after it's cut. There used tobe a spring around the drum to stop that as well. You might try readjusting the rear brakes and it may depend on what type of pads you have on front, if semi metallic they may do that.

Is there any type of spray or stuff to put on the rotors to help from squealing?

Normally this is done when you cut the rotors and install new brake pads. It may need a brake job as well, check to see if the brake Squeelers are touching the rotor if they are you need a brake job in fornt anyway
