Uneven brake wear?

Jeep 2003 with four wheel disc brakes- I've noticed that when cleaning the rims the passenger side rim has an excessive amount of brake dust. I have a feeling that that rake is doing most of the stooping. Is there any way to tell if the pads are pressing with the same force on all four wheels?

Not that I'm aware of, you could do a bleed at all 4 corners to make sure. Did you get the Jeep new?

Does it PULL under braking? Is one wheel warmer than the other?
The front brakes SHOULD be doing a lot of the stopping, so compare front to front.
If the calipher is binding, you may be wearing an the outside lining more rapidly than the inside.
Put it on jackstands and pull the wheels; you should be able to see the upper end of the lining with a good light; are they worn about the same?
Good luck; if it is unusual wear, the warranty should cover it.
