Transfer Case Leak

Today I noticed fluid on my garage floor and it appears to be from the transfer case as there is light amount of fluid on the skid plate as well. 3 weeks ago I had a 2" BDS Suspension installed and since then I have noticed a vibration in the rear when in second gear. Could this be causing the leaking? It is not my daily driver and I have put about 600 miles on since the lift was installed. I also went and did some very easy off roading this past weekend in river bottoms, they were pretty soft with just a few rough areas, I donít think it would be from that, but maybe? I have never had leaking before, and when the lift was installed the mechanic checked the transfer case fluid and didn't see any leaks. I am far below average at doing mechanic work so I am wondering what my next steps should be. Take to mechanic? What are the possible problems that could be causing this and what might it cost me to have the different scenarios repaired. Any help would be great! Thanks in advance.
