Subframe connector installation cost

So today I went to get my subframe connectors installed. I went to a place my friend uses for a lot of custom welding he uses for his cars and other peoples projects. Long story short the guy doing the welding had no gas to even do half of the job so we didn't event start. But in the end after he saw what all needed to be done and welding onto the car he quoted me 500-600 to have both sides done. He said it was going to take him 5-7 hours to finish. This kind of blew me away honestly.

So what has every one else payed to have theirs welded on?

That's pretty high. You don't need to run a bead the whole length of them. Even if you did that's still pretty high. I can weld but I am choosing to have them welded in by a shop and they quoted me $80 they said it probably wouldn't take long at all

Looks like I'll be making a few calls around my area but if every one quotes over 200. I think I'll be tackling this my self

I paid $100 for mine and it took 3 hours with a break for dinner and jacking up the car instead of driving it onto a drive-on lift

Trying your hand at welding isn't the best idea on the underside of your car and definitely not on subframe connectors. This ain't a lengthy in depth job. But it does require skill and knowledge. Also try to avoid doing it on jack stands. If you tweak the frame even slightly you'll notice. A drive on lift is the only way to do it right. You shouldn't have to pay anything over $100. Call around to muffler shops and try to find someone that will do it.

Had mine installed two weeks ago, my Brother put them in place and bolted them up marked where they touched the car and took a grinder and cleaned off the paint all for $40.00 and then I paid a master welder $50.00 to do welding.

Costs $200 around me from a shop that includes a roll on epoxy coating to keep them from getting crudded up. Agreed with other posters, this is NOT NOT NOT the area you try out your welding skills on. Needs to be done properly and done properly the first time.
