This is a crazy price. I replaced mine last year and to be honest they were fine in my 96. Also check to see if your tank is cracked...that is more common and you are due. That said, I ordered mine from gmotors.com, there are three, two going to the heater core and one going to the heater pipe. When you disconnect them from the heater core be gentle, use a zip knife if you can. I used LONG needle nose pliers to get those connection off, they are compression clamps. Its not a difficult or time consuming job just a little tight. Take the tank out to gain clearance and to see what is going on.. Here is a photo of the area:

This photo is from a 96, not sure if your's is identical
