Was this problem there before doing the brake work or after doing it?

This may not be a brake problem, just a symptom.

Has there been any work done to the rear springs?

Has the rear springs been checked for a broken or misaligned leaf? Look for any source of rear end movement.

I have seen a few other strange things on these. If the springs are not an issue, Try to swap the pads side to side and see if the pull changes. If nothing, move to the rotors side to side. There have been issues with aftermarket pads as well. Somtimes the oem pad can fix this issue.

Check for a crushed rear brake line in the area of the shock mount.

Was the brake fluid flushed? IF not it may help. I have seen issues like this that can be a fluid issue in the abs unit that have been helped by Driving about 25 mph and slamming on the brakes to activate the abs and cycle the unit. Do this away from traffic.
