Should I replace opposite side also?  The opposite side is smooth and shiny with only a slight ridge on
outer edge.

Why did you replace only one side? Problems with the caliper? They should have been about the same age, so the pads would be the same thickness. With brakes, replacing in pairs always is preferred.

ALWAYS REPLACE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME

always replace both at same time ! unequal wear is a problem with hoses, they collapse inside restricting flow and pressure to the caliper glazed rotor should be resurfaced, if with in spesifications
