Exclamation Urgent! Suspension spring

Hello guys, need some urgent help. My car is in the shop and I need to decline or approve the repairs by tomorrow.

W210: 2000 E430 2wd.

A rear suspension spring is broke. He wants $450 USD for parts ($200 for parts) and labor to replace both rear springs. Usually this is a matter of compressing the spring and replacing. Is there some complexity that I'm missing here? Why the high price? Is an averager DIY'er capable of this repair?

Thanks much, Matt

I would not attemp this as a DIY project. Way too dangerous. $400 is a cheap price to pay to let a pro do it.
