Default Labor cost of installing 6 bds lift kit (~$3700 one)?

How much do they usually charge for installing a 6 in bds lift? Front 2.5 w/ reservoir, 2.0 back? In San Francisco Bay Area vicinity?
Thanks

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and question your $3700 quote. Your title states that it was for 'labor' only, but even in NoCal, that's gotta be at least including the lift and CO's and shocks(and even then it's high) as well. Average retail labor rate is around $100/hr(although some dealers are upwards of $150/hr now), so that would mean a 37-hour job, which is about 29 hours high if that was a quote just for labor.
Anyway, as I said, it's usually quoted as an 8 hour job. My last BDS lift cost me $1700 all in(tax too) including all parts and the alignment, but that was a pretty good deal. If you don't have a hook-up, just search yelp and talk to others in your area to find a good shop-FIRST-, then worry about the price. Again, it's usually quoted as an 8 hour job all in, and your better shops are usually busier thus less likely to give you a bro deal, but it's definitely not unheard of

~$3700 I mentioned in the title is the 6 lift kit part cost which includes 2.5 CO w/ reservoir front, and 2.0 tube rear.
~$100, or 150/hr labor rate is what I want to know for that particular lift package.
Thank you
