    Can someone recomend a good place to buy a set of Timbrens for my truck?

    The local shop in town quoted me $250, and that seems a little steep.

    From what I've heard, they are relatively easy to install, and I could do it myself, but I cant imagine them costing that much! :confused:

    Thanks!

    Maybe that was the installed price they gave you.
    With the right tools it probably would take 20 minutes with a smoke break thrown in.

    I was just quoted $285.00 for the front of my 1999 F-450.

    Good or Bad?

    Thank You,

    I bought some for the front of my 2005 GMC 2500HD for a whopping $ 144. I did a google search and just kept checking out all the sites that came up until I found one with free shipping. Put them in myself. The first one took me a half hour. I had some trouble getting it in. I was stupid and didn't think of loosening the shock. The second one took me about 1 minute. Total time = 31 minutes.

    Thanks

    Thank you all for the replies.......I did a search, and ordered them online for a little over $150. The guy thats installing my plow told me $250, and he would install them for free since he would be putting the plow on, and would be working on it anyways. Now I'm getting the feeling that he was feeding me a line of ****. Anyways it sounds like they're pretty easy to install, so I'm going to do it myself before I take it to have theplow installed.

    Thanks again for all of the help!
