One, take your brake fluid reservoir cap off.
Two, use a thin piece of wood to help you compress the piston on the it slow. This way, you don't create a lot of pressure to the reservoir and it won't overflow.
Three, these are the steps to removing and replacing the pads for the rear. It does mention a special tool....but you can use a c-clamp for the same purpose:

Rear To Remove:

  1. Check the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir.
  2. If required, remove the fluid until the brake master cylinder reservoir is half full. CAUTION
    Care must be taken when servicing rear brake components without disconnecting the parking brake cable from the brake caliper lever.
  3. Remove the disc brake caliper. Support the caliper with mechanic's wire. CAUTION
    When the brake pads are separated from the brake caliper, new brake pads must be installed. The brake pads are one-time use only.
  4. Remove and discard the brake pads and spring clips from the brake caliper anchor plate. NOTE: Do not remove the anchor plate guide pins. The guide pins are press fit to the brake caliper anchor plate. If the guide pins are damaged a new anchor plate must be installed.
  5. Inspect the brake caliper anchor plate assembly.
  6. Check the guide pins and boots for binding or damage.
  7. Install a new brake caliper anchor plate if it is worn or damaged.
To Install:
NOTE: The left caliper piston turns clockwise and the right caliper piston turns counterclockwise.
  1. Using the special tool, turn and compress the brake caliper piston into the cylinder.
  2. Clean the residual adhesive from the brake caliper fingers and pistons using the specified brake parts cleaner. CAUTION
    Do not allow grease, oil, brake fluid or other contaminants to contact the brake pad or caliper mating surface. Do not install contaminated pads.
    NOTE: Install all the new hardware supplied with brake pad kit.
  3. Install the new spring clips and brake pads.
  4. Position the brake caliper and install the 2 bolts. Tighten caliper bolts to 23 ft-lbs (31 Nm).
  5. If necessary, fill the brake master cylinder reservoir with clean brake fluid.
  6. With the engine running, apply pressure on the brake pedal to seat the brake pads.
  7. Test the brakes for normal operation.

SOURCE: Replacement brake pads for 06 Lexus GS 300?

go with standard pads.they wear a little faster than ceramics.but they dont wear down brake rotors.ceramics pads are hard and they cause brakes to squeak.also your car is under warranty with lexus dealership.i would use what they said. because you have future brake problem. they will void out warranty for not using their brakes.

All About Brakes

This tip is about Car and Truck brakes. The different kinds of friction materials use to make the linings, and a few brake suppliers that you can trust... The Brake Stops Here.

Your vehicles brakes are the single most important piece of safety equipment you have. Without good brakes you are driving a deadly weapon. I am often asked "what are the best kind of brakes?" or "who makes the best brakes?" Let's take a further look in to these questions.

There are many different kinds of friction materials on the market--obviously you want the brakes to perform as good, if not better than the original factory equipment (OEM)--- So what are your choices? OEM brake pads? Premium aftermarket brake pads? Standard or economy grade aftermarket brake pads? Carbon - Carbon metallic - Semi-metallic - Ultra Premium or Ceramic. As you can see it's easy to get confused.

The decisions you make regarding which kind of brake pads to use is an important one because the wrong choice can create noise and wear problems you did not have before. Noise complaints are the number one reason motorist will return to complain about a brake job. Based on my experience, most noise problems are created from semi-metallic pads and/or the lack of "anti squeal" shims behind the pads-- Premium Ceramic pads are what i recommend & install on most all the brake jobs i do. Ceramics are lighter in color & will produce less brake dust, which will help keep those nice alloy wheels clean.
On some high end European cars, i will install a carbon or carbon metallic pad...On a 15 year old truck that is used on the farm, we can save a little money with a lesser quality or economy pad.

One thing to keep in mind about ceramic pads is that they are not all created equal. In other words, "ceramic" is not a generic term for a type of pad material. It is a marketing buzzword for the latest & greatest pad, that covers a wide spectrum of different friction products. The only thing they have in common is that they all contain some type of ceramic as an ingredient... One companies pads may contain 20 different ceramic formulas vs another companies 2 or 3.

Premium friction materials typically provide the best combination of stopping power, fade resistance, noise and wear. They also command a higher price, which more motorist are willing to pay on late-model, luxury cars and light trucks.

The bottom line is that premium grade pads are almost always the best choice. Don't skimp on quality---Premium pads most always provide the best combination of braking performance, noise control and wear & are engineered for your specific vehicle. At the end of the day, they will provide the best all-round value for the money.
^Note the anti squeal shims & rattle springs in this image^

As far as brake suppliers, Bendix - Raybestos - EBC - Wagner, with any of these you can't wrong. Brembo makes a good brake also, "High Performance" but IMO, they are over-rated & priced.

Check back for more of my tips & tricks, or shoot me a direct question...I am here to help.

Until next time, Safe & Happy Motoring!

Squeaking Brakes

What kind of brake pads are you using and did you use brake grease on the pad's baking plate. Lubriplate (blue squeeze tube) makes it, et al. Ceramic pads last longer, but have a tendency to squeal a bit more than OEM or HD (sport) pads. Akibono are best ceramic pads on the market, with ATE, Jurid, Textar, and Galfer about equal in performance pads. Ultra high performance pads are made by Brembo, Galfer (Spain), AP (UK) used by GM, and EPC.

Ink absorber full

There are two possible reasons for an error ink absorber full. First, is the ink absorber pads is actually full of waste ink and needs cleaning. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.

Clean the two absorber pads
. Its is actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when it is in home base position.
How to access the pads and remove it for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base.. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezer and extra cloth for some ink spill. Using the tweezer, lift up the pads sitting on a rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing it under a running water. Warm water will be nice to remove the ink from the pads. After this, you can now return the pads. However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error.

Reset the Printer using an MP Tool
Mp Tools are utilities designed to clear errors that will appear in an MP160 printer. Download this MP Tools here.
while the printer is on Run this software
1. Click Reset Main (main) to reset the waste ink counter and
Click Reset Platen button (E27).

If errors still persist.
Press and Hold down Reset button and wait until the printer restart.
Release the Reset button and wait until it fully initialize.

Happy printing.
Please comeback and rate this answer.
Thank you for using Fixya.

Skweeking brakes

Several possible causes:
  1. Did you use copper-based brake grease on the brake pins and the back of the pads?
  2. Did you clean all the old gunk off the brake pins and after doing so, where they deeply grooved? If so, you must replace them.
  3. Wrong brake pads. Some pad manufacturers list a patricular pad as being OK for a vehicle. They fit OK but the pad characteristics are wrong and they squeal like crazy or wear out in no time or give lousy raking performance etc.
  4. If the pads you removed had anti-squeal shims on the back of them did the new ones? They almost certainly should have. IIRC, they are held to the pads by some double-sided adhesive tape.
  5. If you get squeak-silence-squeak-silence... at low speed (i.e. just before coming to a halt) then the disk(s) is/are distorted. They will have to be replaced. You must not machine the discs on these brakes - there is no thickness available to do that. If you do tthey may well collapse under the heavy braking of an emergency stop with very unfortunate consequences!
  6. As someone said, the disc may be badly worn and/or grooved -check and replace if necessary.
  7. You may have a stone or piece of grit stuck between a pad and a disc. If so & it's worn a groove in the disc,you will need to replace both disc and pad.
  8. Make sure you torqued any brake bolts correctly and that you put thread sealant on them. Failure to do so can lead to them loosening in normal use. The brakes may squeak for a while if this happens but then things can get much worse...

The drum should be on center. It sound like a damper pads issue. The damper pads are located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Check that they are on place and not broken. Good luck !
