Looks to me like you got the 2222549 camshaft, which actually has 0.528" and 0.500" lift. You quoted the lift numbers from the stage 2 version. Not sure if you need stronger springs with it. Mine's being done with a stage 3 Crow cam, but I'm not touching the springs. CM performance said it was fine, so I'm sorta hangin' off their words.

It is the stage 3 one, or in Crow language: "medium performance". Mild performance is more like stage 2ish.

As far as the springs go, I'll just try it and find out. I don't think it take much to change the springs if necessary anyway.
