Default $275 spark plugs

I asked the dealer how much to replace the spark plugs
his quote $275
my truck is 2011 sierra 1500 5.3l 80,000+ miles
the only reason I can think it is so expensive is aluminum heads
do they have a history of the plugs stripping out on the heads ?
it looks like access to the plugs is easy
I am considering doing them myself, anybody have any thoughts, ideas, or recommendations ?

You can save some money by doing the job yourself. The OEM GM spark plugs are less than $7 a piece online. Here's a link to the spark plugs based on your model. You can enter your VIN on the page to make sure they're the right ones for your vehicle. https://www.gmpartsprime.com/oem/gm-...park-plug.html

The link worked for me, but i'm sure if you go down to your local auto parts dealer that you can get spark plugs from between 3 to 8 $ a piece. Usually they come in pairs and average at about 7$.

Yes, do it yourself. Save a lot of money. And you know it will have been done right too.

Done
took an hour n half
1 1/4 body lift that I have on my truck made the job easier
91,000+ miles on the truck , plugs looked good they all measured .039 gap
According to truck info center been getting 14.1 mpg adjusted for my 285-17 tires 14.9 mpg
Speedometer is off by 6%
The truck has felt down on power , hope the plugs will help
