Default lift coil confusion!! camburg vs. fabtech

hey everyone! im trying to lift my truck and got a whole fabtech kit used on CL then saw camburg coils and bilstein for sale locally. so now i have two lift kits and i was comparing coils and i realized the camburg coils which look more worn are about an inch or more shorter!!! i want the 2.5 inch lift and have upper control arms and shocks but im really confused as to why the camburgs are shorter! any suggestions? stock coils i beleive are 14" fabtechs are about 16.5" and camburgs are around 15". im starting to hate craigslist...

Are you talking fabtech coil springs and Camburg coil overs?

no the coils from the camburg 5.5 and the coils from the fabtech 5.5 kits. heres my question tho, with the fabtech 2.5 coils, you need the aftermarket upper arms. if the camburg coils are an inch shorter can i use my stock ucas, the stock size bilsteins, and the 1.5" lift coils and have a nice ride? thats all i want! i got an aftermarket swaybar also. do you think it will be too stiff setup like that? im looking for your opinion: fabtech kit (2.5" coils, ucas, and shitty longer shocks), or stock upper arms camburg coils and bilsteins, or just stock with bilstein and swaybar. i really want the lift but ride is more important! i plan on commiting to one and doing it tomarow so your input would be greatly appreciated!
