    Start saving now and when they are in stock buy.By then you should have enough to buy something better if you want.
    And what is your "cheap" price range?
    Ps . Glad I bought a full set a couple months ago :)

    I would wait for them to come back in stock. If you really want them, then you should be able to wait.

    Otherwise, OME is a good option too. I would get 882s and N91S shocks. That should be 2.5-3" depending on what weight you have up front.

    far from it, but they are a much better alternative to a spacer

    If that's what you want wait. Don't be impatient and buy just to buy.
