You can use LSX style springs on the 3800. Comp and Cam motion work with ZZP and Intense to make cams.

Uh, Maybe folks don't know this but Crane actually made some factory performance cams for GM, Ford, and Mopar.

Either way it's sad that they had to close their doors.

udpate:

A couple weeks ago we heard Crane Cams would be shuttering after 56 years of operation. Crane Cams now claims it plans to reorganize under bankruptcy and restart operations this month.

According to Crane VP Steve Leva, the company is having the same financial troubles befouling the common automotive waters as any other supplier, but their working to restructure and open as soon as possible. The management team is hoping to resume operations in as little as a week, but are targeting sometime this month. This is great news for the for grease monkeys everywhere, as the horror of stock V8 idle and terrifying valve float need not befoul your Saturday night special. Take that Carpocalypse.

update #2 :hs:

Last month, Crane Cams announced that it had shut its doors and told all 280 of its employees not to come back the next day. Shortly afterward, the storied automotive aftermarket parts company indicated that it would reopen after the restructuring process had taken place. That's apparently not the case after all.

LiquiTec Industries has issued a press release stating that it has been contracted to liquidate all of the assets of Crane Cams. The sale will include everything that the company had owned, including all of its unsold products, machinery, raw materials, trademarks and patents. Bids are currently being accepted, after which all of the unsold goods will be put up for auction.

This news comes after speculation that Crane Cams would be purchased by a company called Scorpion Performance. We're not sure what happened to that deal, but we've placed a call with Scorpion in an effort to find out.

Actually it sounds like the original directors found someone to back them.
Maybe they are going to re-start the company again or start another company.

The actual buyer was undisclosed, but several members of the group seated together bidding were identified to me as former directors of Crane Cams in the pre-Mikronite era.
