Shop hours involved with rear shocks

Wondering if anyone knows what Jag prescribes as the right amount of labor tie to replace the rear shocks on an X 308. Need mine dine and want to compare rates.

The Jaguar Repair Time Search program issued in early 2000s lists Jaguar Warranty time for replace rear dampers, vehicle set as 2.4 hours plus .1 ‘drive-in-drive-out’ = 2.5.

I would estimate a ‘real-world’ repair time of 3.75 to 4.0 hours labor.
Warranty time, times time and a half.(2.5 x 1.5 = 3.75)
4.0 hours would be a fair guess.

When I worked at the Jaguar Dealer that is the way we calculated ‘customer-pay’ if a Chilton or Mitchell labor guide did not list the repair.


Thanks much! Funny thing I was thinking 4/5 hrs to myself if I had the tools and a lift. Id’ throw in a rear brake job too if I were doing it.
