I was wondering how much it would cost to repair if I went to a body shop the guy I went in to see said it would be around 600 at a body shop but only around 100 at home plus around 3 hours of labor

Do you
have the same problem?

You can rebuild the differential for that much. If it is only leaking from the cover, you need new gear lube and a gasket which totals around 20 dollars. Add about.5 hours labor. If it is leaking from the yoke, you need to replace a seal and crush sleeve. Parts are around 25 dollars and figure.5 hours labor.

WHY DID YOU GO TO A BODY SHOP? That is a job for a mechanic not a body tech.
