I gather you are saying that your brake pads are wearing unevenly.

If you have sliders and slider bushings, they must be properly lubricated and must move freely

they are not bent but do you have any possible solution. I was thinking maybe just maybe it needs a rotor could a wapred rotor or bent one cause it....

Also when I hit the brakes they make a noise like a grinding but the pads are new in the middle just on the corners of both pads are ate away.... Any help or advise I would highly appreciate it.....
