This could be the result of sticking/hanging caliper(s) which hold pressure and reel the lining off pads in a quick fashion.check calipers

Front end probably

Bent wheel, defective tyre, wheels out of balance, alignment and uneven tyre wear, defective or worn shock absorbers, excessive wear or lash in the steering/suspension components, binding front brake(s), front brake discs warped or excessive axial runout...

Most commonly it is wheel imbalance that is the culprit.

I am getting a grinding noise from my ssangyong musso front wheel

Check wheel bearings,also inspect the brake hardware for uneven wear,pads will reveal this,they should show even wear(both pads having equal wear and similliar patterns of wear)-Jack the car up(safely w/ jack stands)and see if the wheel turns smoothly and then grip the rim and try to rock it laterally(anything will real bad bearing)

2002 toytota camry left front makes noise turning right

This is usually a bad bearing. The tire is tilting to one side and causing uneven wear. The shimmy is because of the slack in the bearing and the contact the front rotor is having with the brake pad. Every time the low side comes around the rotor will hit the brake pad and grab it.

You will need bearings and brake work.

Why brake pads wearing uneven?

When your brakes are applied, the piston which is in behind the inner pad, pushes the pad outward against the rotor first,then that in turn basically pulls the outer pad and assembly inward for the sandwiching affect, squeezing the 2 pads together on either side of the rotor. Although there will be a little difference because of that, other things can effect how much wear difference that will occur, such as poor lubrication of the caliper slide bolts etc, as well as perhaps a partially seized caliper, or even a defective brake hose at caliper, as well as worn bushings in caliper that allow too much play, causing caliper to shift too much. Checking and keeping all those moving parts lubricated properly, will minimize uneven wear.

Uneven brake pad wear how do i fix it?

Unless one of your calipers is sticking or not engaging fully then there should be no reason for uneven wear unless you have a defective pad.

There will be uneven wear from the front to the back however. About 60% of the stopping power is provided by the front brakes and 40% from the rear , so your front brakes will wear faster than your rear brakes.

Grinding noise after replacing front brake pads and rotars, just replaced them

if you are talking about JUST replacing them then they are probably just wearing in. hope you [or whoever did] installed them properly. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be easy for the first 500 miles. i cannot stress that enough! Your brakes have too wear into place and if you do immediate stops and stuff like that it can cause an uneven wear and shorten the life of them!

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee uneven brake wear.

All brakes wear unevenly, no matter the make or model. I have been fixing cars for a job for 50 years and that is a lot of experience. Front brakes are the worst for uneven wear.
