Default Why are both brakes pads worn on the right side yet left side is barely worn at all?

I have a 92 Accord and both pads on the passenger side are worn down and the driver side is in decent shape. The brake line has been replaced recently so I know its not that.

Sticky caliper piston or contact slide area on the caliper.

You have either a caliper that's hanging up, or a bad rotor that's causing excessive pad wear.

a few possibilities

1)over tightened weels on one side

2)not properly installed brake pads (did not bleed, etc)

3)bad allignment

Your passenger side caliper is sticking. This means that when you press the brakes, the caliper grabs, but when you let back off, the caliper is not releasing, causing the brake pads to drag on the rotor. To fix it you either need to replace the caliper or rebuild it.
