I think the price seems a little bit high just to replace the shackle, $400-500? 2 hours of work ($150?) and 50 bucks for the part max., I've looked it up, these parts are cheap as dirt brand new. Why would I even consider paying that much for it? If I could do it myself I'd save myself well over $300 based on that price.

One word. RUST. With that involved a shop will try to err on the high side so they don't lose any money.

Im hoping any shop that takes on that repair is giving a high estimate so they can properly address any corrosion issues they might find on the shackle hanger. At best this will be a patch job to make it through the work season. Yea its time to look for a new truck this ones rusting away underneath you.
