Front strut labor price
 
Hey all, I have some bilstein shocks/struts on their way to me this week and had a question. I intend to do the rear shocks myself but haven't decided if I want to tackle the fronts myself. I called around to get a quote for installing the front struts, and the lowest I have found is $220. Does that sound reasonable/worth it? I only have basic tools and I expect I would have to buy a few things to do the front so I feel it might be worth it just to have someone do it right the first time.

Usually around $100 a corner. Not a killer deal, but not a rip either. Don't know if it's worth it though as I haven't tackled any suspension mods yet on the jeep.

yep, i paid $100 each for the struts and it was worth it. the shocks in the rear are super easy though.

It's very easy to do just have to be careful when backing out the strut bolt, the spring is under slot of tension. You can rent the strut compressor tool from auto zone. I did mine with ease :)
