    was the brake booster a rebuilt or new? are you sure there wasn't any crap/dust/grim that got into the brake booster/master cylinder, did you properly bleed the brakes ?? did you mess with the proportioning valve ?? I would double check your work possibly you over looked a detail. Just somethings to think about, as far as how to fix the problem, you could always take apart the caliper and rebuild if needed.

    Triple check the bleeding, then do it again. It could be the caliper itself is old and just can't take it. The brake booster wouldn't lock one caliper.
