left front brake sticking

I have a 1992 Plymouth Voyager . The left side front brake is sticking. I replaced the caliper and it seems to have improved a little but it did not fix the problem. It seems to me that if the master cylinder was bad that both front brakes would stick. Please give me some suggestions as to what this could be .

Thanks

Wayne

try front brake hoses and change both sides not just one, the hoses can swell inside and act like a check valve on the brake fluid and cause the brake to stick if one hose is bad more than likely the other side is bad also just not to the point to where its noticable yet.

If you loosen the bleeder screw and the caliper opens up, you probably have a bad brake hose as bejay said.
