Pads and rotor replacement cost?

My parts just arrived today, pfc z rated pads, brembo rotors, ate super blue fluid, wear sensors and stainless rotor screws... Now how much should I expect to pay to have them installed?

I called two shops and they refused to install my parts, one shop will however. They said their labor rate is typically $60.00 and hour but if it's a customer parts service they charge $120 an hour. They said "typically an hour an axle" and then I told them I had fluid... "Oh you wanna replace the fluid too?" "well that could take an extra half hour to an hour in case the bleeders aren't good"...

$340.00 labor for pads rotors and fluid? Would $240 be better? I don't want to drop off the car and then end up having a ridiculous bill because "they ran into issues" or made up that they ran into issues. The car has 57k on it and simply needs pads and rotors swapped out. Does this shop sound shady or are they right?

It kinda irritated me that they assumed I was going to keep the same fluid on a front and rear job at almost 60k...
