First, from your above question, I messed with mine a lot for fun. Probably 2 maybe 3 adjustments would be fine for normal people. Rears are easy, 3 bolts and no jack needed if you really want to. If you have a few extra bucks, koni makes a top adjustable rear for about $250 more total.

As for labor, what is fair and what you will pay are different. Rears are a JOKE to replace. Actual time is less than 45 minutes. Fronts are more involved, but a couple hours each is fair. Then you need an alignment.
