Common problem, biggest factor is the labor with everything that needs to be dropped to get at it. Replace the fuel filter while that area is open..........

are u talking about the rear differential cover? i know those things leak a lot. of so... its not too bad to replace, but it involves pulling the axle.

Now if you're talking about the rear axle seals, which is what the author of the thread mentioned, that involved pulling the axle to replace the seal.
To change the axle seals, you just do this: Take off the wheels, unbolt the calipers from the mounts, remove the rotors, pull the rear diff cover, remove the c-clips that hold the axles in place, carefully slide out the axle, pry out the old seal, (check the bearings while your in there), tap the new seal into place, and reverse the steps to put everything back together. $600?? Thats ridiculous to do that, get a shop manual and do it yourself.
