SAWs vs. Camburg

I know that Camburg has their coilovers built by Sway Away, but do they have the same valving? Which do you guys recommend for dd and little off road use?? Thanks in advance

Good luck finding any anyplace. I tried to order them a year and a half ago and they had production issues (out of stock). Tried last week again to order them and nothing has changed. God forbid you needed to have them worked on by them.

already have new ucas. i didnt know that there was a production problem with the saws. does that mean the same for the camburgs? hope not. and i found a place thatll sell the 2.5" diameter saws for $855 and another place thatll sell the camburgs for $925. lets just throw icon into the mix...outta the 3 which would perform better? ive read on here about different valving but am still not quite 100% on which (digressive/progressive) valving is better and which is in what coilovers.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Icon = Digressive

Sway-A-way/Camburg (and the rest) = progressive.


Think of it this way......The Digressive rate will be more firm at slow speeds on small bumps, but softer on larger faster hits. Progressive will be softer on the slower smaller hits, but more firm on the larger/faster things.

correct??
Yep. I prefer the more firm ride on the street myself, but its all dependant on the drivers likes.

you guys are awesome for explaining all this and giving out info. i prefer a little firmer of a ride, plus once on the truck off comes the sway bar.

It will be a race to see if your ICON's show up before mine. LOL I ordered the same thing this weekend, except not the extended travel coilovers, the reg travel ones. Can't wait to see how cool the shocks are.
