    The strut labor would be the same because the spring has to come off to change the strut. The rear shocks labor would not be enough because the labor for spring replacement will require more disassembly.

    labor on the front is 3.2 hr and labor in the back is 3.8 hr . shops can`t charge more then that you need to ask they how much they charge an hr.

    we sell what is called a quick stru that is a complete unit with a new spring and all hardware. it runs about 199 and 1.2 hours labor. fords are common for breaking springs and this is a good answer instead of building a new strut.
