Stock are close, but not long enough. They will work but ride like crap. Not to mention, if you lift it you will wheel it at some point. The stock LCAs aren't overly strong and typically get bent after only a few wheeling trips. Why chance it? Just get some LCAs now and change them while you've got it apart.
Code:
With stock Control Arm Mounts
Lift...LCA......UCA     
Stock..15.75"...15"     
2".....16"......15"     
3".....16"......15"     
4".....16.33"...15"     
4.5"...16.5"....15"     
5".....16.6"....15.25"           
6".....17"......15.5"     
7".....17.36"...15.75"     
8".....17.75"...16"     
9".....18.25"...16.25"
10"....18.75"...17"
The .25" doesn't sound like much but it's enough to throw off your caster, and draw your axle to the back of the wheel well.

I say get adjustable. They are a bit more expensive though, so if money's tight, find the appropriate length fixed arms for your lift and call it a day.
