Default How Much Should I Pay For Labor?

I thought I will ask you guy snice most of you do side work on the car. I'm paying $680 for labor, does this sound right? My buddy doing this at his home( side work).

He doing all this;

Redlion front/rear subframe bushing
Redlion front/rear control arm bushing
Sway bar front/rear
Front strut tower bar
Front/rear endlink
Both front axles
Y-pipe
Front Traction rods
All the motor mount replace
Coilover install

I want to do tune up but then he will add other cost after that idk how much.

I did go to shop they want $1500-$2000.

I think that's within reason. Maybe a little high. Did he tell you how many hours he thought?

If he's having coilovers put on, then a lot of that will need to come apart anyway. The most labor intensive things are the bushings. Not knowing how long it takes to do the bushings or front swaybar, I figured a couple of hours for the suspension components.

The bushing I think are the hardest because I can't do them myself. Everything has to cone out any way and the front sway bar you have to suspend the motor and lower the bottom frame to replace. Definitely at least a days work if you can get the bushings done while your doing the rest. But still I think an Ok amount.

You don't need to drop the subframe completely. What you could do is loosen all 4 bolts a bit then remove the 2 rear bolts completely while supporting the engine below to take some weight off and install the rear bushings and then do the same in the front.
Sounds like not a lot of trust your mechanic.

Thank you BurntOrangeAppeal. Anything else need to remove in order to lower the frame a little bit down? I don't trust no one on my car, unless if I had maxima user from here then I can trust them.
