Finally got a chance to look at this today. Both inner pads are incredibly low. Outsides both look fine. I'll order a set of pads and rotors tomorrow so hopefully next weekend. Been a while since I did the rear myself. I can just use white lithium grease on the slid pins?
Lithium grease is not recommended here. There is a special disk brake grease you can get for cheap at any parts store.

Got around to doing this and found that both rear calipers were seized so replaced them both. Ended up replacing the hose on the driver's side as well and filled the bottle to the top after bleeding. Car is driving fine and braking without any issues, but last night while driving back home the brake like started flashing. Pulled over and the reservoir was still full and I had brakes the whole time. Drove home with no issues bit the light continued to flash. I have to replace 2 ABS sensors but wondering what else I should be looking at for the flashing light?
