Depending on where "international" is....
Scorpion in Australia / NZ
Ozified or AA in the US
I personally have 2 lifts from Ozified and have had no problems with either.
You forgot BYB in Australia, it seems to be a fair bit cheaper then Scorpion.
You could always make yourself one if you know how to weld. Problem there is I figured it to cost $250 to $300 Aus$ for the parts needed. One ready to go in only costs $400 Aus$'s.
Where abouts are you?

use 4mm to 5mm thick square tube. Also use a 3mm to 4mm thick round tube in the middle of the blocks big enough to fit the bolts thru them. If you are going bigger then 4" I suggest doing what most do and weld a bit of the square tubing from block to block to make it stonger. I have seen a few homemade 6" lifts, but I can't remember any addresses. Oh, try looking at SubaruBrats site.
Hope that helps.
P.S. my 2" lift seems to only be made out of 2mm thick square tubing :-/

im in the process of making a simple homemade 2 to 3 inch lift out of 2 inch square steel tubing, just been figuring out on the camber as well, its slow going for me right now since im in the process of my benz project at the same time
