Question: Rear Shocks

I am 23 year old female college student.
I know nothing about cars, not even my own.

I assume a shock is leaking oil? If that is the case, the price is high (esp) at 60K miles. That price must be to replace all the shocks on the vehicle and possibly realign it.

I would shop around as a vehicle with 60K miles really shouldn't have shock issues. It is possible one is leaking, but it is not very common. And if it is leaking, you should be able to get a better deal than $600.
