camburg engineering

so this is my truck:

what do you guys think about the camburg engineering lift kits? I'm looking into the performance 6.0 kit for my truck.
http://www.camburg.com/fordsprodEDGE.html
I found out that the front end of my truck isn't actually lifted, the previous owner just extended the torsion bars out all the way so it sits higher. the rear leaf's also look pretty much flat. so I figure I may as well just re-do the whole setup and get things done right. the front wheels are also off camber but I'll have that fixed soon. back on subject.. let me know what you think about the camburg engineering lifts, what the good and the bad is, etc... thanks.

I don't know anything about it.

But what I do know, is that your truck is awesome.

Camburg is definitely really good stuff, you will be happy for a bit, then you will probably want the LT kit though, haha

Truck looks good now except that front bumper looks like it needs a little work. I have wanted the Camburg kit for a while now but its too much god damn money while I am in school.

Camburg is great stuff if you want to fork over the cash, if you can afford it you might as well go LT though

i ran the fabtech lift for a while and broke the passenger spindle shaft. i installed the camburg 6.0 kit myself (except welding the shocks). it rides like a CADILLAC! i highly recommend it. LT would be nice, but way out of my price range/use. check out my build thread:

If you want a lift, go with fabtech. It will be fine on the street and give you the lift you want. IF you want performance for offroading that can take the abuse, go with camburg. I ran their suspension on my truck with no issues and great performance.

If you would like to order through me, please send me a PM and we can work on getting you some $ off the kit.

I have the Camburg 5.5 kit and it is awesome. It's nice being able to go out and know that your frame would probably give out before the lift would. I wish I could afford the LT but 7k just wasn't in my budget.

That's not a bad price. I thought the camburg kits were hella expensive. Do they make them for 4wd?

Well I have something to say about the camburg lifts, if you are full out dune racing the truck, get it, if not, then don't. Do I like them? Yes. Would I spend 1500 bucks on 6 inches of lift for a 2wd? HELL NO!!! I could easily do a SAS and buy a transfer case/transmission for that price!

get the basic camburg 6in lift then when you want dual shocks order the dual shock kit and just get it welded on besides the fact your truck looks nice kinda like a rocket ship since its not full on LT yet but still looks pretty sweet ha the RED ROCKET

you arent paying for 6" of lift, you are paying for quality parts that wont fail on you under extreme conditions.

If someone wants lift, go for a lift kit. Camburg does not make lift kits, they make suspension kits which also lift the truck.

You could do an SAS buy your transfer case and all that and still not be able to go fast in the desert (i dont know where you came up with dune racing...) and know your suspension can handle it.

Well how do you figure my suspension wouldn't handle it? lol. Thats what I was saying about camburg though. They make really good stuff that won't break, but if its a street queen that will very rarely see off road, I don't see the benefits outweighing the price tag. Thats why I said if he was going to be using the truck on dunes or off road a lot, then camburg is the way to go. Otherwise, to me its a waste of money.

I dont know what suspension you have, but if it is stock then, well, its stock and weak.

If you have a lift spindle, it is cast and not meant to take the abuse.

In either situation, you have a weak upper ball joint, which is not meant to take the abuse of serious impacts. The camburg front end has a massive uniball upper and is a fabricated spindle which will not break.
