Kajtek1 already touched on some of the suspension work but it seems odd to me that you need that much. At 93,000+ miles all I have going bad are the front ball joints and I am waiting for those to get worse before addressing (no drivability symptoms at all at this point).
The transmission service is about what my dealer charges for a partial, not a flush as you called it, so I think that is reasonable. Some members advise against any sort of power flush so you might rethink that.
The valve cover gasket quote sounds high. I had mine fixed under warranty and all I have is an invoice for $0.00 parts and $0.00 labor so I don't know how much labor is involved. The gasket, or elastomer as the invoice called it, should be cheap.
