Well Camburg is plenty durable. For the rear, Camburg suggests Deaver springs. They are a softer spring but they lift the truck. They're designed for longer travel. If you aren't concerned with travel that much, Skyjacker has replacement leaf springs with 6" of lift which should be about level.

Camburg's website is down at the moment, but look on the page posted and toward the bottom you'll see the Deaver springs.

In my opinion it would be stupid for you to buy the Camburg. 98liftedranger beats on his fabtech spindles pretty good and doesn't have any problems from what I've heard. IMO you'd be fine with the fabtech spindles but if you want to spend the money for Camburg be my guest!

Its worth it if you plan on prerunning your truck. If your just driving around town its a total waste of money.

What do you mean work good, what do you want it to do? A true roll bar will have to be custom but will hold up during a roll. A light bar will crumple if you roll on to it.
