You can check those prices here and get another opinion from a independent repair shop and you can find one here and ask them what is the most important items to take care of first

Audi dealeships are a rip off, go to a reputable foreign car service shop to have the work done. You can replace the complete drive shaft with CV joint assembly for less the $100 plus 2 hours of labor each side. I just had mine done. Rear Prop shaft seal is about $35 part and 2-3 hours labor, I'm having mine done as we speak. You will find that the dealership is about 1.5 times the cost higher than other shops. Just pick a reputable shop and ask to use only OEM parts, exception would be the drive shafts. Good luck.
