Not normal at all.Maybe the calipers need to be shimmed to eliminate this or the pads are binding in the caliper.Some investigation is in order for sure.Who did Shizzle buy the kit from?They would be the people to ask about this.My Stoptechs also have differential piston sizes and so far I have zero taper wear issues.It should not be any different with the Alcons.
