Do it yourself it'll be cheaper! Average shop rate is 50-60 an hour and it'll take about 6-8 hours so.... $480 give or take. Do know what shop rates are around where you live Call around and ask local shops.

You could probably get away with stockers for a while if you have like a 225/70/15 any mechanic with a brain should be able to do the install for you. And don't forget the alignment afterwords.
