Evo X Vibration/Noise Driver Side Wheel Wheel

So I wrapped up installing the new clutch in my car and noticed that my car is now making this strange vibration noise in the driver side wheel well. It sounds rotational and gets louder as I accelerate. It sounds like I ran something over but I can't pinpoint the source. I replaced the struts, cv axle, and wheel bearing but it didn't fix the issue. The noise gets louder if I turn to the right or accelerate, but pretty much goes away if I turn left and shift the load. Could a motor mount be the issue? I did strip one of the bolts and had to use a helicoil to repair it. Perhaps it's not torqued down all the way? I'm really lost here and have been losing my mind for over two months now trying to figure this out.

Here's a video of the noise that I hear within the cabin:

is it louder on acceleration only, or speed dependent (louder as you get faster)

Speed dependent would lean towards more wheel/axle/transfer case issue

RPM dependent would lean towards engine/trans, or a RPM dependent vibration/harmonic.

What clutch did you install?

I would check fluid level and then recheck the work that was done.

Hm, what if you raise car in the air and accelerate to see what starts to vibrate. May be raise it by the control arms or on a lift so that suspension is still somewhat loaded.

Sounds like a bent axle or something along those lines.

If you rev it in neutral, do you have this vabration?

It’s definitely speed dependent since the noise doesn’t go away if I shift in to neutral or rev the engine. I got the original axle repaired by a reputable shop so I’m hoping it’s not the transfer case. I didn’t have any issues before this with my case. Could it be that’s something is loose that’s connected like the driveshaft? What’s weird is that it goes away when I turn left.

I got an ACT HDSS

What fluids are you referring to? The transfer case fluid? I think I might have overfilled it a little but would that cause this noise?

I tried raising the car on jack stands and accelerating but I got a warning light. That’s when I decided to stop doing that. There’s no vibration if I rev in neutral.

Noise or vibration that goes away when turning usually leans towards an outer CV or wheel bearing. I would put the car up in the air like suggested, just make sure the suspension is loaded and level so you don't ruin an otherwise good axle.

I had a noise like that twice before it was fender liner rubbing on the tire. Other time it was the brake line rubbing the tire. I would lift the car on four jack stands throw it in first get under it.

If you say axle was repaired I would think imbalanced, or bent axle.

So we ended up lifting the car on jack stands and ran it while jacked up. We were unable to replicate the noise with both the wheel on and off the car. We turned it in the air and there was absolutely no noise. I don’t know if it was because it wasn’t under load but this would lead me to believe that it’s a suspension issue. Would the bad axle have made noise while in the air even with no load?

Suspension would certainly not cause cyclical sound that is speed dependent. I recommend doing what you did, but put jack stands under control arms to load the suspension.

If you left the wheels hanging, there is a chance that angle would not be the same.

Another point is may be check you wheels mating surface on that side. May be there is some debris and when lugnuts were torques, the wheels is crooked? What about lugnuts - are they tight?
