Sounds about right for The Bay Area. Drive up I-80 for a couple hours and save $800. Make a day out of it.

I only did my rears and i have a 15. What year is yours? the newer ones the front strut is different and there is more room to get it out. My front strut looks like the rear strut on the buttom. the big U. care to explain if yours was the same how did you get it out? some say remove the axle?

I have a 2017.. yes I notice the front struts are different, not sure what years they changed it but mines were pretty easy it had two part where I could leave the bottom U part on the lower control arm and unbolt the middle section an pry it apart making it a lot easier then anticipated.Click image for larger version

did your fronts initially look higher than the rears? And did it make some noises in the front until it settled in and the noise went away?

yeah thanks man. I wonder how a shop would determine which goes in the front and rear when the instructions itself doesn't tell. Wish Mopar would have labeled them. I guess the shop just compared size of the springs with the stock and thought "oh these probably goes in the front." Wish i searched about the mopar springs to know that the gray plastic thing on the springs belonged in the back before i went to the shop. Just hate making another trip there and no guarantees the shop is even available to fix it tomorrow.
