Q: drive shaft or solid steel drive axles? on 1997 Ford Explorer

I recently brought my 1997 ford explorer limited AWD to a service shop with front end grinding noise. Almost sounded like muffler drag. Mechanic said it was front drive shaft and it would cost $655 bucks is this right price? I thought the AWD didn't have front drive shaft, any suggestions?
