if you did a vertical uniball setup the upper joint theoretically has an infinite range of mis-alingment. the lower uniball/balljoint will still limit the range of movement of your arms, unless you make them vertically oriented too
just convert the arms to a 1.250" uniball , horizontally oriented ( like they are currently) and maybe do the lower uniball conversion too. this will free up some play in the joints and allow you more travel , as long as the shocks and bumps will allow it.
otherwise you will need new uppers,lowers and spindles fabricated to to the vertical uni setup. then shock/bump mounts will want to be repositioned to take advantage of the extra travel. its not as simple and cut-n-dry like people make it out to be . its a lot of work.
this is a vertical uniball setup:
