RTFM ? it's why 2 setscrews are there.
2, Take the pad turn it so it clears the fork/stay, weak side, back bend the spring further
was what we did before the MFG started putting those screws in..
3) the center cable can be off center to pull one side more than the other at first,
4) though 1 pad may hit the rim first , effective braking doesn't happen until both pads squeeze the rim.
so dont sweat it too much .. [untreated OCD? might need counseling.. ]
oh and 5) a thin washer behind 1 brake pad can make it closer.
