from what i remember, it isnt cheap, minimum 4hr job. especially trying to get at the top hats on the rear struts.

the job itself isnt too hard, lots of minor components to get at the struts to swap them, however, getting at the top hats is the issue.

so go with that knowledge that its roughly a 4hr job, + additional time to get the height to the height of your liking. then just figure out the shop's hourly rate.

I'm a huge Garage Five fan. Great customer service, and very knowledgeable.

$75/hr though.

Sometimes they match labor prices, so shop around too.

Once done you'll want an alignment as well and yes it is a 4 plus hour job. We'll be glad to help just call for an estimate.
