Got UUC ones on mine, but it's a non m. Depending on where you are, it may hit around the 300+ mark labour + parts.

granted i did it on a hoist, but i didnt really use any special tools for the job.......

actually i used an air chisel, but its still very doable without one with a big hammer.


anyway, my point wast that anyone can do it themselves, i was just illustrating that its not a hard job at all so labour time should reflect that.

Mine were done about 2 months ago. I observed the whole process and was glad I wasn't the one weilding that big hammer. Unlikely they had been replaced previously so very hard to shift, but relatively quick to fit the new ones. All up cost was around $270.
