On my 04 GX 470 how long should it take to change out the front and rear shocks/ struts?
Most shops charge flat rates to do a suspension swap. If you are doing it yourself and you know what you are doing, it doesn't take more than a few hours max.
One shop quoted me $120 for Labor to replace the rear shocks. I ended up doing it myself but it took me a few hours because I had to go buy tools, took a little break due to rain, and I had to figure out how to insert the bushings into the shock.
If I had to do the rear shocks again, I could Probably do it in 40 minutes total.
Rears are super easy. Front struts will take a bit of time and require a spring compressor.
