Fair Price to help install a 2" lift

Hey guys,

I got a used 2" Skyjacker budget boost today (Nitro 8000 shocks, 2" spacers and bump stop extenders.)
I know this is something I should be able to install myself, but I am thinking about having someone do it for me, or actually do it with me (I'd be the laborer)..
Just wondering what is a reasonable amount to offer someone for this?
I have a few mechanic aquatinces (not close friends) that I think would be up for it.. Or, if anyone could recommend someone localy as well..

Thanks in advance!

Since its a fairly new vehicle (i.e. bolts less likely to be frozen) I think a shop with all the right equipment such as lift, jacks, air tools should be able to do the job in a few hours. At $90 an hour call it $300.

Cost me $400 because all of the rear shock bolts broke off, still not bad.
