Your thought is correct.
The insertion point is midway between the defroster vent &
the speaker on each side.
I used 6" (wide) x 1 1/4 (deep) x 1/4 (thickness) vibration
damper pads, one on each side.
With a little force, push the pad down the
gap between the windshield & dashboard until it's not visible
from the inside. No, it's not visible from the outside (that was the
first thing I checked after I pushed it in).
Foam may not work because it could still cause noise when the
dashboard pushes against it when the car runs over bumps.

The new pads & rotors don't come out until this month.
Your squealing brake fix may fall into excessive dust fix.
If the screeching noise comes back, tell dealer about new pads &

I went back to my service records, they replaced the pads and calipers, machined the rotors. No brake dust, no squealing. Brake performance does not appear to be affected. Don't understand why they are telling you to wait, it appears they have the fix now. And this was done in November.

They told me to wait more than a month ago. They said the new pads & rotors
won't be available until late January 09.
Already made an appointment for it in two weeks along with recent Lexus recalls/special service campaigns.

Had the brake squealing fixed a week ago.
Dealer thought Lexus came out with a new pad to fix the brake
squealing noise, but new shims instead.
So I requested alternative pads to fix the excessive brake dust.
Dealer installed new shims & new pads. So far the squealing noise has gone away.
Dealer also serviced 2 recalls (fuel delivery pipe & rear booster
pin). Lexus also paid for a full gas tank for fuel delivery pipe

drop me a note and I can forward you a name of a guy at Westside who can beat that deal and offer better after the sales service for you. I bought both of mine from there.

Dear Shengh/board members:
Hope you are doing great. What are some of reasonable offerings for NEW left over 08 gs350 [~100s mile] RWD, no nagivations. Does 42.5K Out the door sound reasonable in Dallas/Forthworth areas?
