If you go to a shop and pay to have everything installed the shop is making money on selling you the parts as well as the labor. If you walk in the shop with your own parts the shop will make nothing on parts, obviously, and usually will charge more for labor to install everything. If you are just having basic stock replacement parts installed just go with what the shop offers.


Before you shell out your money call a couple competing places and get some competitive quotes. Tell them you are price shopping and often they will undercut someone else if you have a printed quote from that first place.
