    Uneven brake pad wear

    Has anyone else noticed this? My inboard pads, the ones closest to the wheel on all three calipers always wears out sooner than the outboard one. Not a by a lot and I definitely don't have a sticking cup. It's more like the caliper design doesn't send equal pressure to both sides of the...
