CALIPER OR PADS

2001 Ford Explorer • 6 cylinder 4WD Automatic • 117,000 miles

Brakes seem fine when I step on them. Looked today and driver rear side had deep grooves on rotor and literally metal-on-metal. The other side had a fair amount of pad left. Should the wear be more or less the same on each side? Is this definitely the caliper or could it be just the pads?

Put new parts on and check them after a few thousand miles.

And check to see if the 1 wheel is hotter after driving. Could be caliper or brake hose.
