How much $$ for sleeve/gusset install?

Title says it all, how much are people paying for labor to have sleeves and gussets installed. I'm all for doing it myself but I don't have a welder.

I'm looking at the Terraflex kit | TeraFlex Suspensions

1 million dollars......give or take. It's really going to depend on your area, wether or not you do a lot of the work yourself, ie disassembly and reassembly after the welding is complete. I think someone else mentioned in a different thread it was about 300-500 for labor.

Maybe Sueby will chime in. She has here's done with the lift. Iirc she asked for me and it would have cost around $500 parts and labor.
I would make sure the person welding knows what they're doing. I know you can toast the factory ball joints if not careful. Honestly, I would do the ball joints as well
