Default Front Axle Leaking

So i took my car for state inspection the other day. An after it was done. They told me that my front axle was leaking an it is about an 800.00 dollar job. Does anybody know what they are talking about. All they said was the front right axle was leaking.. I find it hard to believe that would cost 800.00... Is it a seal that just needs to be replaced or what. Cause if so that is an expensive seal...

I just replace mine,the part was $65 at napa and i did the job myself.
I did look at the dealer for the axle and they quoted $375 with the core credit.

I think they are doing the whole axle. i go in tomorrow so i will find out for sure.. The service adviser said they called it in as a popping noise when turning right. They said the warranty i have wouldn't cover just the leak. So i do believe i am getting the new axle...

Thats the right way to do it IMO. If your boot is torn open, in most cases by the time the problem is noticed, you will get contaminants like dirt/salt/sand if you live in the snow belt inside your CV shaft and cause premature wear that in most cases comes back later to hunt you...or in a shop enviroment called a "comeback"
