Squeaking from left rear

When I'm at low speeds, I notice a squeaking from my left rear. After applying the brake and accellerator, it goes away, but upon taking my foot off the brake, it comes back. Does this likley mean a stuck caliper, a brake that needs adjustment or something more serious like a bearing? Thanks.

How many miles? This sounds similar to my noise which disappeared after replacing the rear swaybar bushings. I wouldn't have guessed.

The car has 84,000 miles and I've never done any work to the bushings, suspension, etc... What did it cost you to replace the bushing?

If you do it yourself, it is just parts!

In my 300e you need 2 and there are less that 2 a piece! Very easy project.

Well, I think the replaced the endlinks as well but I don't quite remember. Will have to check my records to get exact pricing, I think it was $100 bucks for all.
