Reasonable cost for spring perch job W124

Hello - what should I expect to pay to have both spring perches done on my 1993 300TE? I got very different answers from my indie mechanic folks vs. the dealer, so I would like to know what is a good ballpark cost to expect? Only one side is broken (springs intact, bracket thing-y just rotted off the passenger side) but I read on this forum that it is a good idea to do both sides as the other won't be too far off in your future if you don't.

the dealer actually told me that any body shop can do them, does that sound like they don't want the work? And is that true, should I expect any body shop to be able to do this work?

thanks, I am lost without you guys.
