What to Pay for U-joint Replacement

Hey guys. i need a front axle u-joint replaced on my 93 xj.
Its a bit over my head so i want to bring it in. so far i only called one place, and they want about $230 (assuming everything goes smoothly).
this seems kinda high.

so my question is, what should i pay for a front axle U-joint to be replaced?

thanks
Anthony

Most shops around here charge $35 per axel, plus the joints $25.

I would also say the $230 sound pretty fair if you were to take the Jeep in and have them do the Whole Job. I had mine done for $95, but I pulled the axels myself. It is an easy job, but I don't have the equiptment to press the U-Joint in and out of the axels.
