For about the past year I've had a shutter coming from the passenger side front brake, only noticeable at highway speeds(55 and up) w/ no pull to either side

Steps taken to remedy

1. About 8 months ago I replaced front rotors and pads/ checked for any loose bolts. Still had shutter

2. Did a complete brake flush. still have shutter

3. Replaced rubber caliper bushings with brass kit. Still have shutter.

This past weekend I replaced a tie rod end and noticed that the passenger side pads are worn about 1/8" more than the driver side pads. Is it possible that my caliper has gone bad and that the shutter is caused by the passenger side doing all/ most of the braking. Or could there be something else wrong.

Any info would be greatly appreciated
