The best advice I could give is to locate/purchase a die in the spindle/thread size and run it in/out on the spindle to clean up the threads...short of replacing the spindle, I don't know what else you might consider.

You may want to check with your local auto parts store - Advance carries Haynes manuals for many different models. And they're pretty inexpensive. If cost isn't a consideration, you may want to look at Helm publications for the actual shop manuals for that vehicle. It's WELL worth the investment. There may even be a video on YouTube that'll walk you through the process.

Unfortunately I don't have any experience doing it on the Lexus...all I've had to do on my wife's is oil/filter and cabin air filter and engine air filter changes. Though the last trip we took it on, it did sound like it may have a wheel bearing starting to whine a bit. It only has 53k miles on it, so I'm a bit surprised but I've heard of them failing on other vehicles with less miles.
