i am very new to the van life/travel but my baja travels/prerunning/racing wants longer radius arms with hiems on both beams and arms. would be good if i can get a 3" coil over in there.
I had a Camburg kit. The reason why I bought it was because Weldtec was only a few months old at the time and Camburg had been around for a long time fabbing suspension kits for a lot of different trucks.
Back when I got it (about 5 or 6 years ago), the attention to detail on the van kits just weren't there. I dont think they were doing very many of them so they weren't very customer service oriented on it. When I picked up my van, the remote reservoirs for the front shocks weren't charged, they didn't trim the front valance to clear the tires, and the shocks were definitely not valved correctly for a heavy van. When you upgrade shocks, you only get the fronts, so the fronts were Fox and the rears were Bilstein.
They replaced my ball joints and those failed within a month, so I had to take my van back down so they can do the replacement under warranty. When asked what ball joints they use, the reply was "the best".
Since they aren't focused on the van stuff, it was almost like it was an inconvenience to them to get a kit. With Weldtec, vans are what they do so when you call or have questions, you can get detailed answers. I only compare Weldtec to Camburg because they are both bent I beam kits, rather than drop brackets.
I ended up selling the Camburg kit to a member here and recommended to have the front shocks re-valved. He was very satisfied with the kit and properly valved shocks.
