I was going to replace the suspension myself (shocks/springs) but don't have the time. I have the parts and the dealer wants $425 for labor. That seems pretty high. How many hours should this take?

Thanks.

Took 4 hours today, and adjusted the front and rear toe.

I went to my old work and had a friend do it.

Paid him $100.

Doing the suspension will take 3hrs.

thats way high for suspension. It should take them 3 hours max to do all 4 corners. I've done it myself in 2. labor should be around $200-250 max...

just my $.02

Don't go to the dealer if you can help it. Find a good shop or a friend you trust. I have some friends at one of our local dealers, so I payed $250. Otherwise, it would have been over $400.

If someone can do it for $100, they are doing you a FAVOR! It takes 3-5 hours to do for most people. :p

Thanks for the info guys. The local Toyota dealerships have been a waste of my time. I found a local shop that will only charge me for 3 hours labor.
