Question about 2003 Lexus GX 470
Rear brake sensor squeeking
Gx's do not do well with aftermarket brake pads. they always end up in the dealership shop with some noise,pulsation or vibration problem and i see many people paying twice for brakes. i know brake jobs are expensive at the dealer but its really the only way to go. oem parts and an experienced tech are the best way to go.

SOURCE: Brake Pad Sensor
If the brake lining indicator light illuminated prior to brake pad replacement, the wear sensor should be replaced. You have to get down to the point where you remove the brake pads then carefully pry the wear sensor from the brake pad. It is not difficult. There is only one sensor in the front and one in the rear. The front one is approximately $20. (Checkout www.realoem.com. Enter your VIN and/or other vehicle info to obtain the part number and cost.)

Just the basics, Brake pads range from $25-65 depending on what kind of quality your looking for. If the brakes are grinding, you will need 2 rotors ranging from about $50-70 per wheel. On top of that, after you pull the wheels you will have to determine if the calipers are frozen or hanging up. Calipers on that truck run about $75 apiece. You didn't specify if it had ABS brakes so I based everything on standart disc brakes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.

Try spraying the calipers and pads with brake clean usually the squek is from brake dust build up. The caliper slides are the only places where high temp. synthetic caliper grease is used try that as well.

check the pads for wear (1/8th inch min)you do not need to take brakes apart for this.if they need replacing ,dont forget to use copper grease on the back of the pads to stop squeel.if the rotors/discs are badly scored, replace, with new pads then your set for another couple of years....brake/rotor replacement same for nearly all cars.
