One, take your brake fluid reservoir cap off.
Two, use a thin piece of wood to help you compress the piston on the caliper....do 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:
Care must be taken when servicing rear brake components without disconnecting the parking brake cable from the brake caliper lever.
When the brake pads are separated from the brake caliper, new brake pads must be installed. The brake pads are one-time use only.
NOTE: The left caliper piston turns clockwise and the right caliper piston turns counterclockwise.
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.

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.
