If I like you $75.. Maybe even free.
Shops usually will do $75 per side. So anywhere from $200-400
It is pretty easy. All you need are
12,14,17,19* socket sizes. Good strong ratchet.
WD-40
Hammer and flathead to make things easier.
A jack. It's just tiring and time consuming.
Not much skill or intellectual thought required

There's a spring compressor like Bat said. Works with hand tools

Pay him to do it properly with the condition that you can watch and learn so that next time you can do it yourself. I'd never advise anyone that hasn't done any suspension work to DIY unless supervised by someone competent.

Umm what? You don't need a spring compressor to install coilOvers. It's just take out the old stock set and replace them with the new. No more work needed really! Most Coilovers come with top hats

Yes that^


And also $100 is a excellent price.
I would since it's your first time.
Sit there and take notes or videotape him so you can do it next time
Good luck

If you take your time you can do it for free quite easily. Everyone starts somewhere. If your coilovers require removal of the upper mount just be careful and you should be OK.

We did it on my civic with hand tools. It's a good long tedious day of turning wrenches.

Honestly even if it is your first time it will take like eight hours max with breaks lol. If you have experience doing this you can knock out the whole thing in a couple of hours.

You're missing a washer on the bottom of the upper mount I believe.
