Besides camshaft lifts, what are other aspects that I should be taking into consideration when looking into buying a set? Thanks

Go with the exact valve springs that are recommended by your camshaft manufacturer/designer. There is no advantage whatsoever in using springs that do not match these recommendations.

How often you want to change them? (How long do you expect them to perform)

PSI or Isky Super Clean Silicone alloy springs. If you run an aggressive cam with moderate to high spring pressures those springs might last you 4X longer (or better) than standard springs. They are well worth the money.

Check with PSI for a recommendation on their Super Clean Silicone springs.
With a better spring also comes the benefits of running less lbs to control the valve. Springs live longer.

Regardless of the name on the box, your valve springs are made either by Associated or Peterson and the same valve springs are called different names by different companies for marketing.
