Sounds like a worn piston in your caliper causing uneven presure to be 
applied. I would change out the pistons for new and apply the rebuild kit.

Just changed the front disk brake pads (lockheed) on my MGA 1600.  Left
front had really uneven wear (1/16" outer; 3/16" inner)  as compared to
the right side (3/16" in/outer). Does this mean anything assuming all were
changed at one time together?
