I wouldn't exactly call it "reasonable", but I recently had the dealer
replace to two rear struts on my wife's 92 Camry and it cost $600. $200
each for the struts (Toyota), and $200 labor.

Last year I paid $677 to have the damper part only (not the springs)
replaced on all 4 wheels for a 1986 Camry - both labor and material. Another
shop ha estimated the job at about $950. Perhaps the latter shop was
estimating the cost of both dampers and springs; or they had higher-quality
dampers in mind.

Most independent shops charge $50 per strut (maybe $80 if you bring
your parts) for installation and free for shocks. A typical strut
usually runs $69-89, with lifetime warranty (not including labor). So
you'll spend around $500 for all four corners.

Just look for discounts of buy-3-get-1-free deals near holidays and
discounts (or free) on installation from major chains.

You should consider changing out the mounts with the struts. If so,
Monroe's Quick-Strut comes as a whole assembly with dust boot, new
spring, and mount for about $180 a corner.

$200 for a strut? That's pretty expensive for a re-badged $69-79 KYB
("Keep Your Bilstein"), or inserts for only $48 each. Even a Bilstein
wouldn't cost you $200 and these cars are too inexpensive to come with
Bilsteins.

BTW, you'll need to have the alignment checked afterwards too.
