you can do it for free in about 3 hours in your driveway...just go rent a set of spring compressors and a 24" breaker bar from autozone (you put deposit down, and get it back upon bringing the tools back so its free)

When I got my springs installed, I chose to bend over and take it rather then do it myself, but it only cost me $400 CANADIAN - for $525, it better come with a back rub or somehting

Most places around here charge $60-80 per wheel, so $320 is the most that you'll pay.
