it varies from shop to show. But I have seen quotes around $200+

although i did mine on my own, my local shop quoted $250.00, but this was years ago.

It might also help for you to mention your location in your profile. Some members wouldn't mind making some extra cash or even offering to help install them.

I know a buddy of mine used to do springs installs for $60 and a 12 pack.

Might hit you up when I do mine. My major concern is I don't have a spring compressor or place to do it.

From what I understand the camber kit is a bigger pain to do than the springs themselves. Make sure you factor that in and aren't just quoting spring prices.

I did both installs and both can be difficult unless you have a walkthrough to follow or have seen some "tips".

An example is a ratcheting wrench for the camber link install for removing this little black box.

Another tip is reversing a bolt and spreading the spindle clamp for the front struts so the shock can come out easier. (There is another tip somewhere related to this as well)

A torque happy 1/2" impact wrench will speed up the removal of things.
