Default Cost of add a leaf install?

Just would like to know what an average price would be for an add a leaf install, i have a level kit on my FX4 already and the back is at least 1" lower with no weight on it..i wouldnt mind if there was some rake but it needs to be at least level or higher for me.
I would tackle it myself..but could take a while with my limited knowledge and lack of tools for autos.
Thanks y'all

What are you adding the leaf for? Lift or tougher suspension?

If it is for a tougher suspension, look into "Super Springs". other than that the best I can tell you is call a couple shops, most charge by the hour, and it shouldn't take them more than an hour or 2. Adding a leaf is pretty easy.

Go buy 2 C clamps and knock it out yourself in an hour. I can send a trained monkey over to do it for you, it's that easy.

I'm adding it for the lift and the added payload capacity cant be a bad thing, i have the bed full of tools/cords almost everyday and i dont like the sag.
A trained monkey eh? Good should be cheap then
I have screw clamps here...i will look thru the install threads some more, just want it done right.
Thanks
