I went through this exercise a while ago and ended up getting Cardone ones off Amazon and I'm happy with them (even though I'm putting lots of power through them). Much MUCH cheaper than SSA too (two for less than one kinda cheap). Just make sure they pack them extra well (mine arrived a bit damaged but thankfully was repairable with some pliers and hammer).

Just checked. I actually got them off eBay and the total cost landed (using the global shipping, inc. customs) is $201.40 so R2771 per side (as per xe today). I think SSA is 8k per side if I remember correctly. So all in all, very good deal. I replaced both sides at the same time and all's good a few thousand kms later.

Search eBay for:

Nope. That's all inclusive using eBay's customs and shipping assistance at R2771 per side.
