RN 2" lift spacers, pros and cons?

Hi,I've been thinking about lifting my d90 TD5 for a while now. Im running 285/75 r16 BFG MT tires and I'm getting a little bit of rubbing when I go offroading or load the def.
I saw that RN sell a set of spacers for the springs and Im wodering if these spacers (or spacers in general) are a good solution to lift issues.
In my country the OME dealer is currently out of stock of OME springs that are my other option for lifting, but im willing (not with a happy face) to wait and pay the extra price if they worth it.
So, are spacers good? are these spacers good?
Should I wait for springs? pleas consider that the shipping down here makes the springs cost 4 times more than the spacers.
Santiago S.

Santiago, my opinion is stock springs are too weak to compensate for the the additional leverage a spacer provides and can cause failure. Hope that makes sense and helps.
