install them yourself, they aren't that hard. If you post where you are, there may be someone local that can help you.

Having someone do it is a ripoff. Do it yourself, I did

I would guess around $300 +\- $100 for an install.

I would do them yourself. The rears are really easy and the front are not to bad either. Usually it's the front Clevis bolt which gives issues. You can work around it and remove the upper control arms instead. Lots of good info on here how to do them. I never did springs before, and just used the guides here. It was fun!
