    If they're working OK don't worry about it, looks like the pads are fucked up and either unevenly worn or not closing right and need replacing but it's not a big deal.

    Give them time to bed in. You obviously have uneven wear somewhere. Next time maybe change the rotors.

    I didn't use lube and I noticed little boots on the pins and 1 had failed.
    It is a 20 year old car and Ill probably just use the next stimi to buy a van.

    Those brakes look fine though. It's just due to the pad wearing faster at the outside than the inside because that's how circles work - the outside moves faster and shit.

    Rotor shouldn't be rusty where it is rusty.
    Clearly I an inhibited in my current braking abilities.

    Its not just the pins it is where the pads sit in the caliper hanger,those groves have to be cleaned down to bare metal and then they need some slide grease or anti-seize put in there.
    Don't put a ton in just enough to keep it from rusting up again.
    Also make sure the pins slide through the pin hole easy-you don't want it super tight like a virgin.
    If it is then you have to pull that rubber sleeve out and clean the rust out of the hole it was in.
    The rubber sleeve can be hard to get out but I have found that the best way is to get a thin longish flat blade screw driver and slide down the side of the rubber sleeve,once you get all the way down push the screwdriver to the center of the sleeve then you can twist the thing out.
    Then scrape the rust out of the hole put lube on the inside and outside of the sleeve and reinstall in the caliper.
    Then recheck how the pin moves.
    That should fix it.

    That is something you should do but hardly anyone does.
    I have seen it so many times even at a dealership level they just bang that shit out as fast as possible and hope for the best.
