Brake pads

I changed my front brake pads today and notice my left outside pad had some major uneven wear. It looks sloped with one side almost down to the metal and the other edge of the pad with lots more pad remaining. What do you think could cause that? Could my calipers be screwed up, and I’m getting uneven pressure out of them.

What did you replace:

piston boot
caliper piston
piston seal and caliper bores

Did you get a kit from a supplier?
