How do I know when my front axle seals need replace? What should it cost? on 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe

I was told by an oil change shop that I really needed this, because it would fail in a week or two. I am very suspicous of there compenence.

IS THE UNDER SIDE OF THE CAR COVERED IN GEAR OIL? IF YOU PULL BOTH AXLES AND REPLACE SEALS IT COSTS APPROX 400.00
