yeah, only takes about two hours, so 150 is about right. If you are mechanically inclined, just by a spring compressor, they are cheap, and do it yourself.

$150 for the install no more and probably less.
The biggest problem is compressing the spring and mounting it properly.
If you can get the whole strut/spring/upper mount all together, right, and properly mounted for a $15-30 rental of a spring compressor and some knowledgeable friends, then you are good to go and can do it yourself with the right tools/jacks or get any gas station mechanic to do it for you for scrap metal, if you did the hard work right in the first place.
