Does yours have AWD? will make difference in directions
No, 2005 Chrysler 300c rear wheel drive
Ok-here are directions:
Re-assemble and re-install in reverse order. Strut spring compressors available for rental at all parts stores
NOTE: When compressed, springs under tremendous pressure. BE VERY CAREFUL. Serious injury or death can occur if spring comes out of compressor
What would be a fair labor price to have a shop perfore this service?
2hrs per side.
Depending on your local labor rates, expect to pay from $65-100 per hour. Smaller, independent shops usually have a lower hourly labor rate.
Total will be between $260-400 labor

I'm just amazed that you have to disassemble all this stuff,i.e., upper ball joint, etc. just to change out the shock!!!
This is pretty standard on all front struts, no matter the manufacturer. unfortunately, there are no short cuts in order to replace them
