Current Shop Pricing for Suspension work??

I'm looking to get a bunch of work done on my 128i in the next few weeks. I plan to call up a few local indy shops. Bare in mind, I am in NJ, things are a bit pricier here. So any thoughts on what would be a "fair" price?? Labor only.

Corner Balance....$_____
Mount/Balance 4 wheels w/TPMS ...$_____
Wheel Stud Install...$______

Can I get all this done for < $800. Is that too much? Am I too low?? Any input would be great. Thanks

Probably a little under priced. Depends if they charge flat rate on the springs/shocks, and if they have a fixed cost on the alignment/related services. I would imagine you are looking at more like $1k all in.

You can also find capable local members who usually do the labor for less+lunch.
