I?m going to replace my Crower cam with a ?stock? cam. What?s worth purchasing? I see some really cheap ones out there and factory for $800(ish). What are you guys using? Any big quality gaps between brands? I?m sure most of the cheap ones are made by the same people. It?s for a GEMS 4.6

Something sounds funny if you are wearing cams out. I have built dozens of rover motors and have yet to have a Crower cam give me an issue in over 11 years. You more than likely need to look at that motor not the cam.

With the Rover engine, ALWAYS replace the lifters, too.
Use a high ZDDP oil for the run in and some run-in lube on the lifters and cam lobes, with the running in procedure.
