welp during one of the lash adj i either stripped the adjuster screw or locking nut, made the novice mistake of going straight for the 3/8" torque wrench instead of hand tightening first (14ft/lb)

tried to rethread the nut (it was stripped pretty clean) to m8x1.25 but still not locking

will get a new locking nut and hope it's just that and not the screw (looks okay on visual inspection) as replacing it means taking off the cams

Any resolution to this?

Well.. while we are still diagnosing my car, thought I'd turn to good old RS to gather some opinions. Vehicle is 2013 G37X (AWD)

I have a noise that everyone that has heard it (at my shop) has deemed to be a noise nearly identical to wheel bearing on the left front corner. It occurs @ 80-90KPH on DECEL only. Noise goes away when I accelerate. I believe it goes away when I tap the brakes as well, can't recall exactly.

Noise started ~2-3 weeks after lowering it on springs and putting new wheels/tires. I thought it was maybe tires so I put my *brand new* winter tires on, noise still present.

Work we've done:
Machined front rotors (pads/rotors new from 8k ago, all OEM)
Rear rotors measured, all ok
Check all calipers - all ok
Replace both front wheel bearings (OEM)
Full drivetrain fluid change - no contamination found, fluid in good condition (changed every 30k, OEM fluids)
Transmission fluid changed ~4K ago (OEM fluid)
*Caught noise occuring and immediately lifted on hoist, believed to have heard chatter from T-Case which coincides with what we believed was vibration at middle of vehicle.
->Replaced Transfer Case with known good one with 20,000KM (replaced due to nearing end of powertrain warranty on staff's car)
Noise still present.

Next step:
Check and lube axle splines
Alignment???
We're at a bit of loss. As you can see, quite the expense so far.

Thanks all.

Bit of a reach (and a bit of a stupid thought), but were the strut mounts reused in the lowering spring install? Otherwise, axles could use a recheck if they came out during install.

Not a bad thought. I will clarify, we transferred over a complete strut assembly with the lowering spring already compressed. It came off a friend's car that was unfortunately written off (tree damage, not accident) so we did not have to decompress the springs or take anything apart - straight swap with my complete struts. Axles were not removed from the vehicle, only out of the wheel bearing when we pulled the knuckle with wheel bearing back during re&re

The exact same set up was on an identical car with no issues over the course of 1+ years. At this time, we have had little reason to suspect an axle however given how much they are on RockAuto vs OEM (1/5 of the price), I may go ahead and replace the left front axle anyways.

The other cars axles may have been in better shape than yours though. If it was close to going out before the change then the new angle may have accelerated it. If your buddy still has the wrecked car maybe try swapping his on?

Maybe double check everything is tight and there's no signs of tire rub or something too.

got 2 questions!

1) anyone have recommendations for a shop to do a timing belt job for 2004 lexus es 330 in Coquitlam or maybe Burnaby?

2) Recently did an alignment (not the lexus) , but i'm looking upgrade from a 205/55/16 setup to a 225/45/17. Should I do another alignment?
-new setup is slightly heavier than original (not sure if that matters)
-old setup has +45 offset, i think my new setup is a +42 or +40 offset

Thanks

Why would you need an alignment going slightly up in wheel size unless it's camber to clear fenders?
