clicking noise in the front driveshaft when in 4wd

I just got my jeep lifted 4.5in and now there is a clicking noise when the jeep is in 4wd. The guy that did this lift said I need to rebuild the driveshafts but I'm not sure what he meant. Do I need to replace the shaft with a longer one or do I need to take it out and do something with the transfer case. What do you guys think?

You should grease your driveshaft, and replace the U-joints. See if that takes care of the problem, if not, you'll have to dig deeper.
