i have a 2/3 drop on mine and never messed with the chamber at all.... i guess it depends on what wheel/tire combo your running though

Stay away from airbagit.com, it is one of AIM/Chassis techs many websites. You shouldn't have a problem with camber, at least nothing a good alignment shop can't handle. Hell, I have had my Dak bagged for over 2 years with no alignment and it is fine. No abnormal tire wear.

godfathercustoms has pretty good prices on control arms....i put a 3 4 drop on my truck and now its about a 4 4 after the coils settled and i was riding on the bumpstops.....so i cut them off and my truck might as well have no suspension....i ordered djm lower control arms. and a frame notch. they have reasonable shipping too.....

yeah it does i would recommend getting the notch...i have an inch of travel in the rear and 1/4 inch in front dont cut your front bumpstops off..i thought it would ride a little better when i cut them because i was sitting on them but definately not a good idea thats why im going with the control arms.

the djm bolt on notch with bumpstops is only 150 from godfathercustoms.com and the shipping is pretty reasonable...

i have belltech drop shocks. 3inch suspensionmax coils and 4inch blocks..and i just cut the stock stops off in front and the rear stops just unbolt.the rear rides allright with the stops out.and ittl float like a cadillac if you take the torsion bar out haha.but youll want it in there..i just did that to see how it would feel. I really want it to ride smooth and not bottom out and make that nasty metal slamming into metal sound....I plan on bagging the truck later on down the road so its always good to have the notch allready in place...I ordered mine today along with new 3" drop control arms...
