The dealership is likely saying you need the components since the original equipment stuff is kind of one unit.

I'm not too worried about a heat shield, but I am worried about the oxygen sensor. This is before the catalytic converter, and is probably why it needs replaced.

I would recommend you get another opinion - perhaps from an independent mechanic. Click this link for some shops near you...
