Default "Wedging" Wilwoods

I was prepping my car this week for the upcoming PBIR Double SARRC (April 3-5) and noticed something odd.

The front brake pads are not wearing evenly. The leading edge of the pad is worn noticably more than the trailing edge in relation to the disc rotation. The pads are (est) 30-40% worn, and they are clearly "wedging" My initial concern is since the pads are no longer squared in the caliper, they are just a little on the loose side insofar as the fitment in the caliper.

I believe switching to a caliper with "staggered" pistons sizes will cure this, but should I be immediatley concerned? Anyone else noticing this?

As always, your comments are appreciated.
