Shim Springs 300SD

How many hours work is involved to shim the front drivers side spring? The front drivers side of my 1984 300SD sits a little low. The shocks are new. Bushings are fine. Tire wear is normal. I plan to pay a local garage to shim the spring but need to know how many hours labor would be normal? Jacob Wissler Jr http://www.jacobwissler.com

Since the spring doesn't hae to be removed just compressed enough to exposed the top of the spring and thus the collar, no more than 1 hour. 95% of the time would be involved with spring compression, if your mechanic is familiar and quick, even one half-hour is realistic.
