Thanks jsmith..

How do I check for a sticking piston? I know how to pull the pads from the caliper and push the piston back in to install a new pad.. if the piston goes back in am I OK?

If I recall correctly, all 4 front pads were wearing equally.. If a piston were sticking, would one of the pads be worn down more than the others or would it look the same?
