I had the same symptoms (one side was couple seconds behind the other) and in my case it was an ignitor. I swapped ballasts first to check since it is easier than getting to ignitor.

Item 7 labor price is too high, you don't even need tools to replace that hose, hose just clicks into place, 1 minute job. Rear shocks are too high as well, they are around $100 each online.
