Need help. Clicking/grinding noise after lift

I just installed a 1"BL, 1.25MML, and a 2" BDS suspension lift. I backed out of the garage after completing everything and have a loud clicking/grinding noise coming from the front when going forward and backward. I have only gone back and forth in the driveway because I do not want to damage anything. I shifted into 4wd to see if it goes away and it does not. The noise is quite loud, easily heard over the engine. Anyone experience this or have any ideas on what it could be and how to correct it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check your front drive shaft and ensure it's not touching the skid plate.

Support an axle on jack stands, put in neutral, and turn driveshaft by hand. Check for binding anywhere. Do the same for other axle. Tell us if you still get noise. Old U-joints can make a clicking/knocking noise when they start articulate after years road use.
