Absolutely get a second opinion. Replacing a fuel pump has nothing to do with any suspension components. Just pull the battery, the battery tray (four nuts), disconnect the electrical connector to the fuel pump/sending unit, unscrew the large ring at the top of the tank, pull out the sending unit and there is the fuel pump. A quarter turn counter clockwise and lift out the pump. Other than having to stick your arm into a fuel tank full of fuel, it couldn't be any simpler.

Replacement is the reverse of disassembly. Sounds as if someone was trying to take you for much more than what it should cost for replacement. I'm surprised that they didn't tell you that your muffler bearings were going out as well.
