I've done that but I'm rotating my tires and checking brakes often enough it makes no diffence.

As for one side wearing faster than other--that'* the reason I replaced both calipers with remanufactured. It don't have to try to clean up the rubber inserts, replace piston seals, and lube to try to get both sides to slide equally.
