Tried to do some searching but couldn't find anything. Has anyone run the TC UCAs on the stock OffRoad suspension. If not can anyone think why this might be a problem?

I will eventually be doing a suspension lift, just not sure which one at this time, however any of them will involve using the TC UCAs.

I'm not sure if anyone has, but it definitely won't be a problem. They will give you more droop with a stock setup.

Nope, droop on the stock suspension is limited by the coil-over shock assembly.

They will give you more droop with a "spacer lift" or with longer coil-overs (AKA Radflo, etc).

yeah, if you get a small spacer you will gain the droop travel the total chaos arms are capable of
"TOTAL CHAOS now offers a bolt on Upper Control Arm system that eliminates the factory ball joint and upgrades to a 1" Teflon lined uniball on the 05+ Nissan Frontier, XTerra, & Pathfinder. The newly designed Frontier, XTerra, and Pathfinder factory upper arms contact the coil bucket during droop wheel travel. The contact is amplified and more noticeable when aftermarket coil spacers are installed. TC UCAs incorporate a tab designed to bolt on a urethane droop stop which contacts the coil bucket during droop travel. TC also designed the UCAs to add caster which will aid in vehicle cornering and overall handling on and off road. They also assist in correcting alignment when aftermarket lifts are installed. TC’s tubular arms are manufactured using 4130 chromoly tubing and come powder coated silver with an additional clear powder coat to retain a long lasting finish. The UCA will allow for additional wheel travel in some applications. Adding a 2" PRG coil spacer will slightly increase wheel travel and installing the PRG 2.75" spacer maximizes lift but does not increase travel. The system is 100% bolt on and requires no drilling or welding for the installation. Removal and replacement of the steering shaft is necessary on the driver’s side to remove the factory hardware on the front pivot. You can purchase a replacement bolt for the front pivot and cut the factory bolt but you must specify this additional item at your time of your initial order. The bolts are not included with the kit. The arms can be installed on any Frontier, XTerra, or Pathfinder that retains the factory control arm and spindle mounting locations. All pivot tubes include zerk fittings to lubricate the urethane bushings and inner sleeves while bolted on the vehicle. The kit comes complete with 1" uniballs, hi-misalignment spacers, urethane bushings, inner sleeves, bump stop pads and grade 8 hardware. "
