Cost of Sway Bar Install

My front and rear sways will be here today. What do you guys think it will cost to have them installed? I'm hoping $100-150?

I guess the rear isn't hard to do. But I read a post that the front is a *****?

for the front, i didnt have the jacks and tools etc so my mechanic charged me $40. CA labor is like 45-50 per hour depend on where you go and installing the front should not take more than 2 hours. They finished installing my front sway in like 45 minutes.

as for rear, literally you can do it yourself unless your lazy. Unless your a big person and the bumper prevents your stomach from going under it should take you more than 20 minutes to have it installed.

No not lazy or fat.

I reckon it shouldn't take him more than 20 minutes to install it.

I took it to the Mechanic...I don't have alot of time these days plus no jacks. To do the front they had to drop the motor. The steering feels nice and tight now. Charged me $120 took him about 1.5 hours.

He was trying to charge me 220, I think considering you have to drop the motor $120 is fair.
