How much for labor

How much is it typically labor is it to remove and install springs on our body?

A buddy wants me to to remove and cut his springs and install them. What do you think is fair ?

Shops generally charge at least around $150-200 for the job i believe.
Depends how much your in need of money.

If it were just and acquaintance rather than a friend for me id ask for maybe 50-75

I was quoted 300 for mine on my truck because it was 4 hours and I gave a friend 150 so I would do whatever half the quote is
