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. :confused:

Sorry for the long post. :blob7:

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

:lurk:

Hey guys,
I am also down to have a mod day! I will be more than happy to learn how to install a lift along with basic maintenance knowledge.

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.

I’m in Oxford area and have a 3 bay garage if you need help. I installed a PRG lift on my truck a couple years ago.

Where are you originally from? If you’ve been in the salt belt for a couple years, I’d suggest buying new LCAs. You may end up with seized bolts in the LCA which requires you to cut them out.

Hey! Thanks so much for the offer! My car is originally from CA but moved to PA in 2015. I guess I can buy a pair of LCA for precaution and return them if they're not needed. Any brand recommendations?

Best suggestion is try to spin the bolts on the LCA’s prior to purchasing anything. If they rotate, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to get them out. You do not have to loosen them for this.

I always try to buy OEM where and when I can. There’s a reason their parts last as long as they do. I have heard good things about quite a few brands on Rockauto, but I cannot recall their names right now. Do a quick search on the forum for reviews on LCAs.
