Budget upgrades

Looking at shocks for my 08 JKU 4 door and possibly a 1.75 in coil spacer kit. Budget is tight, looking at keeping it less than 350-400 total. So far I'm leaning towards the following shock set.

and the following spacer kit.

I would wait until the budget has room for better shocks. ProComp shocks are junk. Keep the stock shocks and go with the Teraflex spacer leveling kit for $129.

Or hunt online for cheap Rubicon shocks that someone pulled off their Jeep.

I'd get a set of Rubicon shocks off Craigslist before the ProComps. Where's Seymour? I grew up in Elkhart.
