signs of bad struts

I have a 1999 Audi A8 and I think the struts/shocks need to be replaced. I live in the College Park MD area and my car has around 100,000 miles on it. The front right wheel compartment has been making a lot of squeaky and metal grinding noise when i go over bumps and stop and go. I got a quote for new struts/shocks for just the front and it was $1300. But when I look up shock absorbers I price them at $123.00 How is this possible and do i have the correct problem dignoasis?
