Default gears $$$

Im going to be getting 4.10's this summer and I was quoted at 900$ for the gears, installation, and gear oil. Is this a fair price? What have you guys payed for your gears?

This performance shop was the closest to me. It's a shopcalled Blood Enterprises in Washington. I guess they do really good work, but I cant see paying that much. I just want to make sure that whoever installs the gears does it right and thatthere is no gear whine.
