Hi

Just moved to the US so not familiar with what workshops charge for jobs, can anyone give me an idea of what a shop will charge to replace all four shocks?

Searched Amazon and KYB fronts with springs and rear shocks (plan to reuse my rear springs) will be around $300, so wondering what the labor would be?

I would do my self but wasn't able to bring any of my tools with me from Australia.

I'm guessing a shop might quote 4 hours, 1 hour per corner?

Thanks.

rockauto has the kyb shocks cheaper than amazon, & kyb may still be doing a rebate for them.

not sure where youre located, but most shops in the midwest US states charge about $80-$100/hr for labor, smaller family owned shops are about $60-$75. 4 hours sound reasonable but a real shop with a lift should be able to do it in less time. just need to call around for estimates.
