Struts for a 2001 ford taurus

WHAT IS A GOOD PRICE FOR A COMPLETE SET OF FRONT STRUTS AND LABOR? I GOT A QUOTE OF $800 AT GOODYEAR.

Sounds a little high,but in the ball park. Replacing basic struts runs about $300 -$700, depending on make and model. Using higher-grade parts can bump the cost to $700 -$1,000 or more. That should include an alignment. Is this at the dealer or an independent mechanic? Dealers usually are higher priced. Get a couple estimates to make sure your not getting burned.

Each strut assembly runs about $200 each. There is some labor involved so the price seems a little high but not unreasonable.
