I have a 37 Plymouth P-4 set up with a Fatman IFS and it is working fine. Don't know Jim's product. Suggest you try to do a part by part comparison with a reputable and popular IFS package. Look at metal thickness, parts included/excluded, finishes, warranty, reputation, feedback from others using Jim's stuff, etc. Do your homework first and you will be able to make a sound decision. Good Luck!

I just got my IFS kit from Jim Weimer Rod Garage this week and so far I am pleased with the purchase. I haven't installed it yet but will be soon. I called and talked to Darrell the owner before I made the purchase. He urged me to call if any questions came up during the install. The kit has good quality parts along with quality fabricated parts. I got the tube a-arm IFS kit and a complete rear spring kit (Chassis Engineering) from him less than 2k. Give him a call and talk to him before you decide and also call the other guys too.

I'm with the general concensus. I've talked with Darrell on the phone too and I'm going to go with the Jim Weimer when it's time to order the front end for my '37 Dodge coupe. Another really nice looking option is Jim Meyer Racing (google it up). Their kit uses Camaro parts and is designed from the ground up custom a-arms, easy to find parts, excellent handling designed from the get go, but really expensive . I've read some not-too flattering things about Fatman parts, but you probably can't go wrong with any of the options out there now.
