Default Precedent IQ with Uneven Brake Pad Wear

I need to change my brakes after inspecting them. Driver side is completely worn where the self adjuster is pushing against the brake pad. The other pads have a lot of pad left in them. Is this normal brake wear? I'd hate to change all the pads and this happens again.

The first pic is the worn down pad. The other pads look like the second pic. Drums are in good shape no lip.

I would think they should all wear evenly. How is that normal?

Looks to me like the brake shoe slides need to be cleaned and lubed.
My shoes were wearing uneven and grabbing until I took the drums off cleaned everything and lubed the sliders. Be working great for about a year now.

Can I just change the worn set and pull the sliders off and use lube them up good? Or do I need to replace both the drivers and passengers side pads at the same time?

I think I would just Change all the shoes and clean and lube. These things are designed to float to stay centered in the drum.
