cherokee brake problem

Hi. I have a 2001 cherokee that has been having an annoying problem with the rear left brake.

14 months ago, i suddenly started getting a loud clicking sound with a grabbing sensation in the left brake. I had both rear brakes replaced.

A few months later, the sound came and feeling came back. I took it back to the shop and they did a "clean and adjust" job on the rear brakes. No charge. The problem stayed away for about a month. I have had to take it back no less than 5 times. They tell me I am the only Jeep that comes there with this problem.

You cant hear or feel anything unless your just about stopped, but at that point, it will actually make your head bob back and forth.

Has anyone had this problem or have any idea what it could be? Since this problem developed before the new brakes, I dont think they sold me bad brake parts
