Sorry to hear that. It could be a worn right camber plate. Since you are taking it in, please let us know what exactly is the problem.

There will NOT be any rubbing issues by the ELSD.
The slight contact issue you are hearing is located on the front x-pipe...
You are just experiencing a slight alignment issue in that area.
What we have noticed recently, is that the spacing between various IS-F's differ by a few millimeters.
Basically, when your are making hard right turns under heavy acceleration, the entire engine, manifold, exhaust & transmission; ALL shift left...
There is a black bracket there that supports the plastic transmission aerodynamic cover, which is stationary.
What you are going to do is loosen the two flange bolts that attach to the manifold, place a pry bar in between the x-pipe and bracket. While applying some pressure & creating space, the flange bolts must be re-tightened. It is recommended to do one side at a time making sure the spacing is even and equally split on each side.
Those black brackets can also be loosened and adjsuted, OR shaved just a bit.
AGAIN, all they hold is the plastic cover, NOT the transmission.
The areas circled in red below show the possible contact points.
Your issue will be on the Passenger Side.
Passenger Side....................................Drivers Side
Let me know if this solves your issue..
You are totally correct it was infact that bracket!!!!!!!!! We should definitely post this over in the exhaust section so people know about it with the exhaust. The lexus dealer found it and fixed it for free even though it was aftermarket, which I a happy about.
Any other modifications??? or is it ALL STOCK ??The thing is, on my car, which only has 3000 miles with a stock intake makes a sort of grinding noise from the rear right tire when going slowly on a bump, and I think this is a bearing issue though it has not been through a lot. Any suggestions?
