    Make sure your slider pins are well lubed.
    If they are binding/dragging you'll get uneven wear on the pads.

    I lube my brakes every year.
    Some guys lube them twice a year.

    Apparently Sil Glyde is really good lube and lasts much longer.

    Try pushing on the brake pedal then pulling the P-brake handle about 40 times.
    That should adjust your brakes.

    There is an adjustment for the P-brake cable in the console under the P-brake handle. Your cables may have stretched or your self adjusters stopped working.
