How much does a Suspension repair cost?
Your suspension has many different parts so the cost of repair or replacement varies a lot. A suspension repair can range from $200-$2,000 depending on the scope of the repair and the type of vehicle.
What is a vehicle's Suspension?
The suspension system connects a vehicle to its steering system and wheels. It’s made up of tires, springs, shocks (or struts), and linkages and it enables steering as well as absorbs shock while driving. When you’re on a rough, bumpy road, your suspension prevents damage to your vehicle and keeps your ride relatively smooth.
The springs and shocks take on most of the burden, reducing impact. Meanwhile, your strut-mount, ball joints, and a few other elements allow your suspension to travel up and down freely as well as connect your wheels to the steering parts. They’re also the components that break down first and need replacing the most. But other parts like springs and steering mounts may last the whole life of your vehicle.
