seems you've got some blown seals in your calipers. your pistons a possibly seized due to water and rust. You should rebuilt them or have them rebuilt

wouldn't you have a warranty that will cover that? Lexus should hook you up on that one.

Traction control on modern cars often makes use of the rear brakes. I'm thinking it looks like the front brakes aren't pulling their weight so the rears get over-used or that you're engaging traction control a bunch which wears out the rear pads.

Well interesting fact that Lexus dealer said it's normal wear and tear. I really hoping you guys see at picture that one of brake pads is at 0% and another one at 70%. And both of this brake pads from one wheel

What is happening is the caliper is not moving freely on the pins. Remove the pins and clean the holes in the bracket out. Put new pins and boots with plenty of grease. When the pads wear uneven. This is because of this movement. Brakes 101. You can slap pads on all day long and it will do this everytime. Untill you do this. You will need new pads and rotors also.

Agreed, start here. Mine had siezed on one of the pins when i bought it so had done something similar, not quite so extreme. Had to get another pin and caliper frame and use high temp antiseize grease on it to fix mine, the joys of floating calipers. Its not often a seal in the caliper would have gone and caused this kind of mayhem . . . though i guess it depends where you live, no snow or salt on the roads over winter where i live
