I am aware I have the option to do the job myself and if I wanted to, I wouldn't have asked about the quoted price. I'd rather pay someone else and have the day for other stuff.

I'm not sure why some here need to be all high and mighty on DIY and condescending towards those of us who choose to pay others to do certain jobs on our cars.

Sorry, did not mean to condescend.

I see your point. Im in my 30's and there are days which just the thought of pulling out the floor jack, jackstands, and tools to do something to the car makes my back and legs protest.
