If the only corner sticking is the left rear, then that's where the problem
is. Has a left rear line been crimped or struck with something to cause a
restriction in the line? Pull the wheel, hub and drum and check for a part
out of place, broken return spring, piston so far out it's jamming, anything
abnormal like that.
