Depends on the shop you go to, they will have slightly different hourly rates.

Bet on 4 hours of install time plus an alignment.

I have been using a newer shop that is being set up at Premier Performance. The labour costs are really great, and James is super good at what he does. Lowered my car, and fixed some other suspension problems.

10/10

Google Premier Performance and get in touch with them.

Great for parts too.

Depends on what needs to be done. If you're talking a cheap set that you're just replacing the springs with, then a couple hours. If you're installing GC with custom perches, simple adjustable rear then a couple more to cut off the factory spring perch and weld on new ones.

If you're talking real coilovers front / rear, then factor in about 8 to 10 more hours of race shop fabricating for the rear. But I doubt that's what we're talking about.
