It would take that long if you remove the arms, but it would be normal to do the job on the car, the tool is 150 quid, and then total hours would be three. Ask at a few garages till you find someone familiar with the job and has the tool. 250-300 all in would be a reasonable price.

I've not used them for years, but Anchor Garage near Brownhills seem to have a good reputation. Depends where you are in Walsall, of course.
