Have the installing shop provide all parts, that way they will warranty everything... parts and labor. If you instead bought the parts & they installed them, they would just blame your parts if something went wrong after the install... which is not uncommon due to the complexity of installing them.
Total parts & labor costs for both axles cost me <$1100 the last time & just over $1300 the first time... some shops will quote sky-high prices on their initial quote and hope you will not argue or ask for a lower price that they will usually give if you push them hard enough.
