I noticed hissing sounds while I was driving. The repair shop is telling me it's the front differential/gear lash. To fix with used part (140,000 miles) $1349 or a remanufactured for $2300. Any suggestions?

Also, the rear passenger window does not work. They tell me a window regulator is needed $353. Does this seem correct?

To tell if the window motor is bad try working the controls with the engine off along with the hvac blowers(you should hear a click of a relay as the switches are worked the interior lights should flicker as the switches are worked if the motor is getting power)

No clue on the diff though as I haven't had issues with my front diff yet

Do not put a front differential in that has anything over 50k miles on it or you will likely be doing it again soon. A remanufactured differential can usually be purchased for around $800-$1000. The rest of the cost is labor. Removing and replacing the front differential is not a job to undertake yourself unless you are pretty mechanically inclined and don't mind a 75lbs chunk of car laying on your chest.
