Thanks in advance

Nothing difficult...very simple. lexus pads can be had for $40 to $50 per set. Suggest lubing the guide pins, and everything else is just like any other disk pad replacement. The only unknown for me (because I am used to the RX300) is whether the piston are the type that push in, or have to be screwed in.....maybe somebody else could answer that.
Typically, if the parking brake mechanism uses the calipers to hold the rotor, then the piston will be the screw in type. If the parking brake is the drum inside the hat of the rotor type, then they will be push in. I don't know about the current generation RX, but my 2006 RX400h is the drum in the hat type - yours likely will be as well.
