New Rotors/Pads uneven wear?

So I just bought and installed new Power Stop Z36 rotors and pads about 2 months ago. I noticed the rear driver side had some odd wear on it a couple days after installing. Figured I would give it some time to see if it corrected itself and it has not. Not exactly sure what’s going on with it. I know the caliper is good, I inspected all pads and rotors before installing them and everything seemed fine and didn’t notice any kind of defects. All other pads and rotors seem to be wearing normally for the most part.

I’m now also starting to hear what seems like a very faint brake squeak but only when I let off the gas. Doesn’t happen when I’m braking either. Not sure if it’s related but I can’t really pin the noise down to the same wheel as the wearing pad.

Any ideas why this is happening? Here are picture of four rotors: https://imgur.com/a/kHbwQtC

Did you clean and lube the caliper pins and the holes in the calipers they slide in?
A little dirt/dust on those pins, or if they are scored up or damaged in any way, and they can cause that caliper to hang up slightly.

Yup. Thoroughly cleaned everything and completely re-lubed everything. In fact, that was the first brake I started with and I can remember that i coated that *****.

Really weird too because I could tell that the driver front caliper was starting to seize up but that pad has been wearing perfectly.

Sounds to me like the pins are not sliding in and out smoothly or the pads are not moving on the clips. What ever it is you will need to remove everything to figure it out. But I think it will be once of the two.
