I have never had any luck just replacing 1 caliper its always come back to haunt me. Where is the rubber brake line in relation to the caliper? Its cheap and you might as well go ahead and replace it. Its possible it has formed a "back check valve".

Normally, its 2 calipers and 2 hoses when I do them.

hoses are usually the cause, brake calipers usually leak b4 they seize. The only ones that siezed alot were the gm "white metal" calipers
