Default Good price on labor (front suspension rehab)

I live in so cal OC. and i have recently rehab my front suspension.

Parts replaced:
Front & rear shocks with KYB's
x2 front lower control arms (upper control arms to come)
x2 radius arms
x2 ball joints
x2 tie rods
x2 strut mounts
x2 front spring set/dust boot
x2 rear rubber spring set

LABOR COST 290$ FOR ALL PARTS INSTALLED. parts cost is up to all of you to get the best prices (shop Carson Toyota, Parts.com and Toyolex parts out of Florida on ebay)

The shop i got it done at is my friends shop and his been a professional mechanic for 20+ years. Nice and clean shop and job gets done in about 5 hours. If anyone wants to get it done let me know and we can set it up. (he works sundays also for everyones convince).

My GS400 has about 128K and the suspension was never touched by anyone before. After i got all those parts replaced the car DRIVES LIKE NEW. i never thought a 12 year old car would feel new if all those parts are replaced. IF UR LEX FEELS FUNNY ON THE ROAD, take my word for it and change all the suspension parts and it will feel like new.

LET me know if anyone interested.

very good price!

But since you had everything out why not go for daizen bushings?

Alexdan,
Can I get the number of your mechanic that did your suspension work back in 2010? I plan on doing the same thing. Thanks in advance!
Rick
