REAR CALIPER

2009 Nissan Frontier • 120 miles

I changed my rear brake pads about 3 months ago at the firestone. At that time, they said that all I need was just pads. About 3-4 days ago, my rear brake made noise and squeaks.
So, I stopped by firestone because I still had warranty. This time, they said my calipers locked up and it had to be fixed as soon as possible. They asked me $525.70 including labor and parts(This price was after they gave me $200 discount) I just wonder if it is normal or not.
P.S. My car is 2009 nissan frontier but since I've driven a lot, really a lot. My mileage 120k
When they fixed my rear brake 3 months ago, my air filter was missing. How do I know?
I drove after I picked my truck. It sounded so weird so I stopped by some mechanic and he told me there was no air filter.
Thank you
