The Labor is the main thing that varies... depending on the vendor (and the markup they take) the parts aren't usually tremendously different.
Some of the JF.com Vendors that I have gotten quotes and parts from (Northridge4x4 and DC4WD) are offering parts below what my Local shop is paying for them at his costs before mark-up.
Labor in my area is $84/hr at the one shop I frequent (because the owner has taken care of me) up to over $100 at another 4x4Shop down the way just a bit. Being in NorCal, everything costs most, so I assume the labor charges vary quite a bit from place to place.
