    I am mechanically retarded. I have no tools. I have no place to work on it.

    How much did you pay to have 5100s installed on all 4 corners? I was quoted $300 by my local shop. They are nice guys, trustworthy, etc, etc.

    Hey Joe! I would say thats fair. It is pretty labor intensive(time wise not hard work) on the front. Shop around though, and if you find someone w/ a lower price, then see if the Good Ol Boys you like will match that price to get the business. It's tough times, but most shops will price match. Good Luck!! JOE>

    Too few to list.
    Labor wise, an hour for each side on the fronts @ $60 per hour and 30 minutes for both the rear.

    Look for wrench-a-thons in your section. I'm sure someone will install them for you for some beer. At least that's the way it is down hur.

    Don't forget to allow for the alignment, which someone else will have to do even if you do the install yourself.

    I assume the 300 includes alignment - but you should confirm that.
