front brakes pads wearing unevenly

My 2004 Ranger is wearing the breakpads unevenly. The outside pads on both front brakes were worn almost to the metal, but the both inside pads were almost new. I'm at a loss for why only one side of both calipers seems to be pressing against the rotor. Any ideas?

Re: front brakes pads wearing unevenly

Being in Australia i am not familiar with the brakes on this model but this is usually a sign that the slide pins on a brake caliper are seized. the fix is to dismantle the caliper and remove the slide pins, replace and corroded parts and lubricate the slide pins with white silicon grease.
