    Rear shocks

    well leaks don't get better on their own and depending on whats leaking it could cause additional damage, but just saying that its a ball bearing is not specific enough to even guess at what the issue could be going to need more info than that

    Does this seem reasonable?

    that's a bit high but not too bad, that's similar to what we charge for trans flush and 4x4 service. servicing the diffs should also include greasing the drive shafts

    Close to giving up...can't find the misfire!

    test your o2 sensors, you can do that from the obd port. I had bad sensors and a really crappy wire repair job by the po that was the cause of a similar misfire on mine.
