I didn't say the LCAs needed to be removed to install a lift. I said the alignment cams may need to be functional for an alignment to be performed. You may have nailed it with frozen cams and aftermarket UCAs, but not everyone will be so fortunate.

As long as the LCA can pivot down far enough to get the strut in place (and it should), you can install the lift.
Your truck is old enough that the LCA bolts, alignment cams, and bushings are probably a rusty mess, so you should plan on replacing them - BJs are probably worn out, too. Order new parts and follow Boyd's DIYs. Other than having a press to fully seat the new bushings, the rest of the required tools are fairly common and inexpensive. You should be able to find a shop to press the bushings for a reasonable fee. The rest of the job looks like a pain, but it's straightforward.
Getting the truck aligned will probably require changing out the bushings, but none of that should be a problem when installing your lift, though.
