Uneven Brakepad

One of the pistons on my driver's side caliper is sticking, which has caused uneven wear on the pad. I'll be replacing the calipers and was wondering if I can reuse the pad. I would say one end is worn no more than 1/16" than the other. I just replaced the pads last year and don't want to replace them if not absolutely necessary.

Uneven wear could cause pad to jam or not move freely in slides, I would replace them if mine. Get a set of loaded calipers,

Yeah, you're right. I already ordered some Beck/Arnley semi-loaded calipers and am going to get a set of Hawk LTS pads. That is what I have on their now and I like them.
