I took a fresh look at the brakes again and tried to figure it out. It seemed that they would allow the pads to spring back so as to prevent the pads from rubbing on the rotor. So I figured (wrongly) that it out to be symmetrical and pull both ends of the pad off the rotor...so I installed 2 on each brake.
