Would be cheaper to buy the tools and change them yourself.
That would save about $300 by doing it yourself.. The major thing to be careful about is to not put any stress on the A/C coolant lines going through the firewall while you are changing the plugs. You can easily break a line on the evaporator and to replace it you will need to take the whole dash apart. Not an easy jobnore a cheap one.. So if you're going to tackle it yourself, please be careful and save yourself another expensive item to replace.
