superlift brake question help asap

i have the older kit on my 05 so i remember putting rotors from a 01 on since they were smaller but i dont remember if the pads were any different, i need new ones and its showing different part numbers for a 01 and a 05, if i just get them for the 05 they should work? i dont think it had anything to do with the pads, just the rotors but i dont feel like having to make two trips.

what would cause pads on one side to be shot and the other half way? air in the system? i replaced them with ceramic pads but it feels like there could be more pedal to it.

Sounds like a caliper problem... is everything moving properly?

yup everything works like it should just pads show differences in wear, i was thinkin maybe air on that side so its not pressing as hard as the passenger side, i bled the driver side and when i took the nipple loose fluid started coming out on its own.
