RR Parking Brake Lever on Caliper

When new calipers were put on about a year ago, the parking brake cables were seized up so they weren't put on the caliper. I put new cables on a month ago and now when it sits the RR drags until it's warm.

On the RF the seal came off the caliper and started dragging so I pushed the piston out, cleaned and high temp greased it. Might be the case on this, but if not is there a way to grease the parking brake lever?

I tested it overnight by not leaving the parking brake on and this morning it rolled like a dream

Moved to Brakes, Suspension & Chassis

There's at LEAST one good thread in this section detailing the rear caliper rebuild process, not as simple as the fronts by any means.
