ok if your 100 % sure it is leaking Freon out of # ***** that is the AC accumulator and it needs to be replacedthe accumulators run $ 90 and the labor to change it and evac and recharge the AC system would be @ 1.5 hours labor X's the shops labor rateno the whole system does not need to replacedidk what kind of shop told you that but they need to NOT be working on your truck

do they leak from the bottom a lot.it looks to me like a sealed container but I am lost

yes the fitting is built into that aluminum partthey either leak on the bottom of them OR it can leak from where the lines connect to the fire wallif its not from either of those then the ONLY other place it can be leaking from is the evap core inside the truck and the heater a/c drain is lower in that area and you need to see if its leaking out of that drain hole if it is then the evap core needs to be changed which that would run 8.0 hours X's the shops labor rate and @ $ 200 for the evap core itself which will run up close to $ 1000
