Shock and alignment cost?

I'm getting the rear TSB done and I'm thinking about putting billstein 5100s all around. What do you think it would cost for labor to replace the shocks and do an alignment? I think the alignment is included when you do a rear tsb.

Well I called the dealer and they said 1.5 hours per front shock and $129 for an alignment. Labor rate is about $100/hr. So about $429 to do front shocks. I would do the rears myself. The billstein 5100s are about $300 for a set of 4. This would mean about $800 to do new shocks with taxes. I don't feel it's worth it. What do you guys think?
