I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.First may I begin by asking what year is your Lexus? And are you sure it is a 360? I'm unfamiliar with this model.Thanks

since i dont know the year of your LS my answer will be this. if the vehicle is all wheel drive then you can not dolly tow the vehicle. since it is a rear wheel drive vehicle it is recommended that if you do dolly the vehicle that is be dollied backwards. this however causes issues since you need to be able to lock the steering securely. but also the front end hangs over the front axle line further than the rear so it tends to hit if towed backwards.

in short i would not advise you to dolly this vehicle but to get a light trailer that you can get all four wheels off the ground.
