Do lifted trucks require different rear upper control arms?

Update:

I have a new truck and it's lifted. I hear a creaking noise from the rear and it's the rear upper control arm bushings that have worn off. Can i replace them with stock or do I need a longer version?

    This answer won't help you at all in the current timeframe, but I feel I should tell you that my excellent mechanic, who has all the work he can handle, refuses requests to lift or drop vehicles. Presumably that sort of work doesn't pay well and comes back to bite him.

      Normally the lift or drop changes the geometry of the components, which is why most come in "kits". I would determine which lift is on the truck and see what their recommended arm/bushing set is. Compare a stock unit with what you have for length and angles. Can normally replace just bushings too.
