For those lifts, or in my case just a 2.4 leveling kit, will that require a camber kit installation also to ensure a proper alignment?

What you want to do will require more than just that "kit". You'll get a stiffer ride, plus it states you'll need a different upper control arm for the 3' spring, and definitely new shocks. If you go Spindles it changes nothing about the suspension geometry, bolts up to stock upper and lower arms, just has the snout coming out of a lower point on the spindle

Ryan1126 is correct. camburg builds kits for off road trucks mostly pre-runners. i have an 04 crew cab that i wanna build into a pre-runner. the difference being that a lift raise the truck with out giving much wheel travel. long travel kits will give you between 4-6 in of lift and tire size has a factor as in a reg. lift. but long travel creats a lot more body roll, wider front end and more dramatic body movement during braking. not really ment for your daily driver on raod.

the other day I saw an f150 with the camburg setup, I dont think it was camburg but Id would look pretty sweet though..

Um some points I agree on others well not so much. Thing is on tire size well wether it is a bolt in coli over and UCA most fols run 35's. Than with a mid travel kit to full on long travel they run 37's as well you want more sidewall to help the susupension absorb the bumps. Now body roll and such. Well yes but it is no worse than stock unless you really whip it around a croner. That however depends on your setup and valving and bumpstops and whatnot. Wider front end means it will be mroe stable and hug to the ground better and such thus making the vehicle stay planted when doing 80mph around a corner pitching 6,000lbs and not lossing control or rolling it. Again braking you will not be slammed forward as you say. Many many long travel trucks are used for a daily driver and such.
