5ks, dragging rear brake

The RR brake caliper seems to "drag" occasionally, enough that the pad
life was reduced considerably on one side.  The piston does not leak,
and does not seem frozen --it retracts and moves in and out easily.  I
checked the new pads after a short trip (under 50 mi), and can see that
the inner has worn unevenly.  It appears that the bottom of the pad
contacts the rotor, while the top does not.  I re-intalled, and
presently the brake is not "dragging", but I'm sure something is not
right.  Any ideas or advice?  --Gary               ('86's: 5ks&5ktq)
