whoopie my first big bill!! DRIVESHAFT?

So after a couple of months i am facing my first big bill! not bad to go 8 weeks without spending any money?
started getting what i thought was wheel balance wobble at first so got balance/tracking done, needless to say that was money wasted cos as you probably all know by now it is a driveshaft problem! (wobble when accelerating at low or high speeds)
after looking on here i realise how common it is!!
both sides have play and one side has a torn gaiter, so new spiders both sides and a new gaiter.
on the plus side they will put my air filter in whist its on the ramp! that a real PITA of a job!
I am using cloverleaf services in glos and its 280 all in, any opinions on the garage?, the price?, and whether just the spiders is ok? will be welcolmed??????
