Mine cost me $550 for KYB shocks and Dobinsons springs, and then another $300 for installation and other things i needed done. ie tyre rotations etc. But it shouldn't cost you more then $240 for labour, if they ask for more tell them they're dreaming.

i must not be charging enough for labour at my workplace then if you paid $300 ,you wouldnt pay for a tyre rotation mate if the tyres was already off unless your saying they did other work,good price for parts though

I paid $300 for many other things that were done, not just tyre rotation ;)
