Unless the UCA is hitting the coil preventing full droop your travel should be limited by the bumpstops and/or the shock droop.

I've seen where people are running the OME's with the toytec spacers on top to give a full 3" lift. That way you can still run your 33's, maybe with a little trimming but still opens up your options

True. I'm from the "spacers suck" demographic, but a .5" spacer might not be a bad idea. Thanks for the suggestion.

Chris, correct me here, but I do believe you get a little more suspension travel with new UCAs. I don't know how much, but I do believe it's more.
You are correct, you will get a little more travel with the new UCAs because the upper ball joints will be able to articulate better. Opposed to a stock setup where the ball joint can prematurely limit the suspension from full flex.
