Simple to do, most shops do not actually know how to set them up. I charge only $200 for my local Vegas drivers.

The rears take about 25min to install, fronts about an hour, and another couple hours corner balancing.

Calculate the labor cost for your location by 3 to 4 hours and there you go. Don't forget to add the alignment cost.

Don't know if this is the same guy you're all talking about, but there's a guy here in Lutz who did a diff swap for me a few years back. He's owns a Nismo and is a pro mechanic at Morse Cadillac. Call Jack @ 813-310-9406 Hopefully, that info is still current.

INstall isn't time consuming. It's not hard either. Definitely not worth paying someone to do. Especially considering that you're going to get hit with other chargers because it's a suspension component. You'd do yourself a favor by checking the DIY on it.

Justin60222 is referring back to a 3 yr post, so my comment still applies. It also applies to the person who revived the thread.

I paid $160 for my bilstein pss9 install and that included cleaning, testing, and they had to use the oem tops hats. But I also paid $160 for the other car that the coilovers came off of and reinstall of his OEM suspension
