uneven brake pad wear

i was checking my brake pads today and i saw that both front pads are worn unevenly. i pumped the pedal without the calipers hooked up and only one piston came out on both of them. theyre both supposed to come out right? also, whenever i come to a stop my abs comes on just before i stop. im taking it to the dealer thursday to have it looked at but i was wondering if the calipers not working right could be causing that. if so ill just save my money and buy new ones.

Yea all pistons should be working, may just need to be lubricated

If they are stuck you can get a rebuild kit and do em yourself, pay big $ for Subaru rebuilt, or upgrade to the 06-07 4pots, or BBK (if you have wheels to fit over em)

Yes those are the 06-07 stock brakes. And no your 16s will probably not clear them. Some do, but not very many.
