Ford 2wd lift kit?

Hey guys, I have found the 3 companies that make a lift kit for us 2wd guys......Camburg, Action Van, and J-Flame engineering. With that being said, who has had experience with any of these 3 and what are your comments? In the end it looks like they will all cost about the same after installation. Thanks in advance!

Re: Ford 2wd lift kit?

I have not dealt with any of them, but looking at their designs I would recommend J-flame without hesitation. The others (especially Camburg) do not maintain proper geometry. Also, they bend the I-beams, which is a no-no (warning is cast right into the I-beams). J-flame maintains proper geometry, and does not modify the I-beams.

Thanks for the reply! I was thinking the same thing, but have read good things about the other 2 companies.

Re: Ford 2wd lift kit?

Camburg is a NO for me also because of the bending thing.
Both Action Van and J-Flame make good products.
I have Action Van on my 2007 E350. No problems or complaints.
If I would have know about J Flame, I would have gone with them. Their stuff just looks better.
Both kits keep proper geometry and use the same pitnam arm.

Where you from?

I read a post of your on another forum regarding your problems with lifting your van and the Advance Trac RSC. What solution did you come up with? Would you recommend finding a van without the A T RSC?
