    Are Uniball upper control arms like Camburg, TC or the new Icon tubular of any benefit to a stock 2010 Offroad suspension. I know that the suspension under normal conditions has 4" up and 4" down of travel. Is that limited by the upper control arm or by the Offroad Bilsteins themselves?

    I know theynhelp with alignment when lifted and add some Castormfor steering angle but what about travel at the stock ride height?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    They arent going to help with a stock truck, and they could cause tire rub, as the added caster from the UCA's, will move the tire back in the well a little bit.

    So the stock UCA's will travel all that the stock Bilsteins will?

    On a non-midtravel setup, the down travel of the suspension will be limited by the shock, not the uca.

    Unless you have a sizable top-plate spacer.

    OK, thanks for the info. Just wanted to know if I could generate some additional travel by uniball UCA's instead of going mid travel coilovers. I'm sure if that was the case people would be doing it regularly.

    Thanks though,
    Chris
