Default air bag install

Just talked to a newbee PT owner today.

He was wondering how much labor only would it cost to have someone install 4 front air bags for him. He has the bags, just needs a labor cost. (approximate)
I advised he consider doing his front panhard rod bushings at the same time.

I've done all 10 of mine and several other coaches but never charged for the job, so I have no idea what it is worth.

$880 labor + cost of the airbags. Double the labor if the mechanic does not have a service pit to work in. I'm figuring a full day at $110 per hour.

8 sounds correct for a professional, that's about how long it takes two old guys, a helper and two supervisors.

My recent experience was 2 non professionals all day on 4 bags. Maybe pros could go twice as fast?

Glen ans I used to do FC front bags in about 5 hours,PT bags went alot faster.
But,we had done a few and we had a pit.
Glen was a small man,being small helped a lot!

At one of the RIVs, I had my front blow out on my pt40. Went over to the RATS and Ralph and I had it removed and replaced in about an hour. The gallery was still growing as we emerged from under the bus. Back in the Day~

I did mine in a day, using jacks and jack stands. They are the easiest.
