cant find ranger edge spindle lift

i have been looking on the internet for a 3 inch spindle lift for my 2wd edge and the only one i saw was fabtec for 700+$ are there any cheaper kits available? any sites where i can maybe get used spindle lifts? i cant even find any on ebay, the one on ebay for 200$ says that its a 3" spindle lift for 00-05 rangers but wont fit edge . so whats the difference? i really dont want to dish out 700$ for just spindle lift
i need some help with this someone please explain me what my options are

procomp makes a similar one that is slightly less. The thing is your not just getting spindles. You get 4 shocks and 2" AALs + spindles

i got everything i needed for under $500 new by getting stuff on sale and not buying the whole kit together... and i would get the fabtech ones since i have seen a few broken doetsch ones... look at www.4wheelparts.com they sell just the spindles and you can get the aal's and shackles from www.summitracing.com

Ummm im almost positive that if your going to lift your truck 3 inches in the front that you need new shocks.

You don't need new shocks in the front. The spindle only drops the spindle on the knuckle 3" resulting in a lift, the dynamics of the control arms are not changed. Shock length stays the same.
