2004 CR-V: Replace Struts

This is for a 2004 Honda CR-V, with about 115,000 miles...

My mechanic says I need new upper strut front mounts. He says they're about $90 each, and I'm looking at about $500 with labor. I think this is way too much - and other work I've had done seems to be on the high side (ie, too expensive) also.

I'm went to another shop, and was told I need new front mounts as well as new struts all around - all four. He said you don't just replace the front without doing the rear ones also. He also gave me a breakdown for all four that totaled $642 with tax & labor.

Is this a reasonable price?
Is there really something wrong with just getting new front struts and not the back ones?

    The price breakdown I posted earlier is wrong. It should be, "He also gave me a breakdown for all four that totaled $940 with tax & labor (Not $642)!

    I think you can only edit for the first 30 minutes, after you post.
