If you can't find a rear left caliper, buy the right rear and use the parts to rebuild your left caliper---or take it to someone who can do that. I checked Rock auto and you're right they don't have a left rear caliper; I've gotten calipers from them in the past. Anyway, Centric is a good rebuilder. I would replace the seals and piston (in the your existing piston is pitted).
You could just buy a rebuild kit, however, they don't come with the piston. It's crucial to replace the piston to ensure a good seal and for it to last. You might want to also buy a rebuild kit, which just comes with the seals to have an extra set of seals for the rebuild process.
