Default rear struts on 96 Regal custom

I have a new pair of Monroe struts for my Regal Custom 4 door but I'm unable to install them. I've got prices ranging from $350. down to $250. and they all say it'* because of the springs on the struts which the Regal doesn't have as to why it'* so high to R&R them. Anyone have a reasonable price and where it was done?

Go to Autozone and rent the spring compressor. That will save you about $300.

wbodies have transverse springs in the back, dont think its much more than changing some shocks.

i wouldnt take it to any of the shops that want that much
