I know this is a long shot, but has anyone checked out axle shops that can "customize" a set for you? A while back when I had my miata, there was a local shop that was willing to setup a whole axle adaptation kit for my vehicle for like $600, the axle was warrantied to handle at most, 600HP or so. If there are any local Orlando AWD cars available, let me know. I'll take you there and we can speak with them. Possibly help out the AWD community

This would be great, still havent lowered mine yet cause im scared of the wobble vibration attack. Its strange that nobody has been able to pin point the exact cause for this, we just might have to take a lexus certified tech hostage and do a lil interrogating

RT Tuning

As soon as the car was on the lift they spotted the problem. The problem is in the design of the axle with the AWD.

This is so freaking frustrating. Wish I had found this information before I bought the car.

Has anyone ever pulled the front axles (making it RWD)? I'm sure there would be some kind of alarm or dash light (or maybe even some sort of limp mode). Just an idea.

This spacer is the best option only problem is everyone is at different ride heights so it you eliminate 80% I would run with it. New drive shafts custom made wouldn't be worth the cost IMO and still no guarantee that it will eliminate this 100%.

i was tucking my tires on my 20s (when the car was aligned and fitted the shop measured 12" the center of the wheel to the top of the well) and it eliminated almost everything.

Well looks like for now the spacers are the way to go, but thats last on my list. Just got my lip kit getting it painted to be put on. Got my new wheels already on, next will be the smart start. Then the interior so maybe by spring time or summer ill tackle the drop
