Anyone have a ball park figure to replace all rear diff seals at a reputable independant shop these days?

I believe I got quoted 3 to 3.5 hours labor for all the seals. That worked out to almost $300 ($83 hour) That does NOT include the seals, they are not that much though.

Seals are cheap even with shop upcharge they shouldn't be more than $5 for aftermarket $20 for oem. Makesure they are doing the driveshaft seal as well, and that they replace the grease Axel seals instead of reusing the old ones. The axels seals should run about $20 a pop, the driveshaft grease seal is more expensive, but no more than $30
