Pads look even on both sides. No, I did not check rear brakes? But when I hit the brakes the steering wheel pull to the right too.

you alos need to check the slid pins on the caliper the wheel may still stop because it do not take much for you to be able to turn it by hand but may not stop with the wheel on the ground and the weigh of the vehicle

if the pins and the piston on the calipers are moving freely then yes they are fine but you need to take it apart to check it not check push the brake and see if the wheel lock up as i stated there is a lot more force needed to with the wight of the car on the wheels .
