Question Brake pads uneven after bad caliper

Okay, I had a bad caliper on the passenger side front. It was like this when I bought the vehicle and apparently it had been driven like that for some time.

I have replaced both front calipers and bled the system, but I was to poor to replace the brake pads at the same time So on went the old pads which where all fine except one pad that had worn down further then the rest. This pad is located on the passenger side caliper.

My question is would this be why my Runner pulls to the right when I brake?
I am going to replace all the pads this week, but I am wondering if this worn down pad on the on the PASSENGER side would make it pull to the PASSENGER side?

Be nice

No vibration at all. It just pulls slightly, not to bad unless I take my hand off the wheel.

That seems strange.....are all the pads the same?
One of the new rebuilt calipers may have a stuck piston.

I would compress all the calipers, turn both rotors (if not warped) and put on a fresh set of pads.

3 of the pads are the same thickness but 1 of the pads is about half the thickness due to the seized caliper.
