Anyone know who makes it for them? It looks and sounds (by the description) like the TCI kit. The only difference I can see is how the camber is adjusted. Is it TCIs older style kits or a knockoff or..?

To me, the pictures don't fit the description. Says it's bolt-in, but shows a weld-on crossmember. I have the TCI and it doesn't look like what Jamco offers. I bought mine from Walton Fabrication.

The picture is a universal picture according to jamco so "the actual product may appear different". Why they wouldn't post a pic of the actual kit I'm not sure.

I suspect they don't carry any stock and would have the ifs drop-shipped. You need to ask for the specific installation instructions. If they balk at that, find another seller. Just my opinion.

Just what specific brand ifs are you interested in?

I'd love TCI Or Chassis Engineering but if the jamco kit is the same thing for a 1000 less that's hard to pass up

Everything except the way you adjust camber as far as I can tell

Alright they got back to me with directions. The two studs are in different spots on each side of the crossmember than the tci kit. The Jamco swaybar links are described as the same as tci. I asked if it was included in the kit as on their site I believe it said it came with it but in the directions parts list it didnt.
Edit...he just got back to me and said it does include the swaybar so it's almost identical to the tci kit minus the stud placement.
Edit #2...he told me the kits are made by CCP. The bolt in kit isn't on their web site however. Does anyone know where they're made?

I'd recommend going with the TCI kit. It is worth the money just for the stability of the camber adjustment. A big pothole can cause the pinch bolt to shift and lean your wheel over with the "top-down" upper control arm adjustment; with the "side-mount" and shim adjustment method used by TCI you have a rock-solid front end. There's an old saying about the happiness of a lower price versus the joy of high quality. Just my opinion, of course; I'm no expert but I did use the TCI kit after weeks of research

Still confused after all these years!
