How many hours for coilover and rear subframe bushing instal ?

I am about to instal tckline coilovers, and m3 rear subframe bushings. Labor estimates from a cople independents have been somewhat variable. I am wondering what experience has been on the two separate installs for labor hours.? I am looking for actual versus book time. Also, how much time to dial in the corner weighting and alignment afterwards. Thanks in advance for the info.

I just got quoted for my KW V1 install and it was $300 so I think about 3-4 hours is about right

I'm interested in TCKline coilovers also. Did you buy them from the TCKline site or were you able to find them elsewhere cheaper? Mind sharing what your labor estimates are too so I can get a feel for what it will cost?

Thanks!
