I think it's outrageous. I've changed the shocks on a Diplomat (RR8R - shocks) and a Knight (RR4R - 4 shocks). With an air gun, I was able to knock out each shock in about 15 minutes. Three hours would be reasonable. I would love to watch; they would be hard pressed to stall and take an hour on each shock.
If you had to pull the wheels to do it, it would be a different story, but no need to. I know things are more expensive now, but I would look around, maybe a local tire store, you don't need a repair shop to do shocks.
