Lift Kit Installation & Fluid Change

Happy Holidays everyone!

The forums have helped me many times for repairs and advice for mods. I got the NissTec Radflo Extended Travel Ultimate Kit a while back but haven't been able to get it install due to relocating for school.
Anyways, I finally have time to get it install so I was wondering if there are any shops around the Philadelphia area that can install aftermarket lift.
I live in an apt complex and have very little tools and space to carry out this modification.

I am also due for Front/Rear Diff oil, transfer case, Coolant flush change. I wondering if anyone had recommendation for mechanics/shop for maintenance work.

Of concern, I have noticed a clicking sound whenever I coast regardless of revving the engine, clutch engaged/disengaged. I am worried if my differential is damaged. I looked up on the forums and it looked like my drivetrain may be the culprit.

Sorry for the long post.

TL;DR - in need of installing lift kit, drivetrain fluid change, and diagnose clicking sound

I wish I was closer, I'd love to help out. I'm sure you can find a reputable shop in your area though.

The clicking sound you are hearing at slow speeds could be worn out U-Joints.

Check both the front and the back because the front drive shaft spins even when 4WD is not engaged.

Thanks for the tip! I will inspect the U joints as well.

Anymore tips please post!

Just an update, Got my Front, rear, transfer case, transmission oil changed yesterday and the clicking noise still remains. Looks like it the U-joint is the culprit. Will keep you guys posted.
