the clicking noise is the starter relay engaging, you say it starts w/jumpercables-starter is ok, either alt is not charging the battery or the battery can not hold a charge anymore any auto parts store can check it and tell you witch is bad

Is the suspension fluid low. If it is, try first to add specific Suspension Fluid for LX470. It is part number 08886-01805 and any Lexus Dealer would be able to look up. Cost about $ 30 it comes in 2.5 Liters. If driving at higher speeds it is normal for it to drop just a bit and resume to balanced height when parked.
Unless you can hear the starter slipping and not engaging, your delayed start is most likely ignition or fuel related.If you can hear the engine turning over slowly and nor firing that could be a result of a low battery. It may be time for new plugs or injector cleaner, however you say the LX runs smoothly. Please post more details,ie mileage since last tune up , etc.
For 2002 LX470; after monthly starting failures each month, over seven month period. First, battery was replaced, then throttle assembly, then engine computer, then ignition module, then transmission, then problem was attributed to a cracked fuse module and entire module was replaced. Port for one of the fuses was supposedly cracked (although no final determination could be made because module is completely sealed and cannot be opened without destroying entire contents). Problem attributed to expansion/contraction in module that had crack, resulting in intermittent starting failures.
