Default Rear axle assembly replacement

I have a stx 550Navara and have had the rear axle seal replaced twice and still have problems with the seal leaking so back to Nissan who tell me that it is the inner seal that is leaking and the whole axle assembly requires replacing. total quote including rear drum brakes and labour was $2900 and I've got them down to $2100. To me this still seems excessive, just wondering what others have been paying for this.

i would be doing the job myself, stuff paying that much money for such a simple job. the seals are easy to replace after the axle is removed.

Apparently if the inner seal is gone than you have to replace the whole axle assembly.

What the nissan service guys told me, and have read this elsewhere. Why they would design it this way beats me.

i don,t beleive that you have to replace all this cause a seal goes. Nissan will tell you anything sometimes to get you inas they just like to replace the whole assembly and not just the needed parts. get a quote from an independant mechanical workshop and see wht they say.
i did a quick google and apparently you can replace both seals on there own.
