Question on sway bar installation

I just ordered some swaybars for my 08 335i Coupe from H&R and have started shopping around for places to intall them, I was quoted $385 for front and rear intallation from a place one of my freinds recommended and was told that the reason it would cost so much is the rear end had to be dropped in order to install the sway bar. My question is, is that the case and if it is this a decent price for the installation? The only thing I have done to the car so far is a SSK so I'm pretty new to tuning the car. Also if anyone has some recommendations for any shops in the Colorado Springs/Denver area i'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Seems reasonable. The rear bar is a pain to get to and probably 4 hrs work.

If you are going to do it might as well do the rear subframe bushings at the same time.

Good deal

385 not bad for both front and rear
Rear is 3-4 hours of PITA work and can cause problems if not done right.

I second doinf subframe bushings as its the same work to install. If already there then just another hour of labor.

The front is much easier to put in.
