How much is it to replace a car’s suspension?

My car’s suspension has been a bit noisy and feels clunky, and I think it might need to be replaced. How much is it to replace a car’s suspension?

Replacing a car’s suspension is not a small undertaking, nor does it have a small price tag. Replacing a suspension system typically costs between $1,000 to $5,000, but the price can vary depending on the type of vehicle, price of replacement parts, and the complexity of the replacement.
The mechanic is actually replacing three separate parts in a suspension replacement: the springs, shock absorbers/struts, and linkages such as ball joints.
If you think your car is experiencing problems with the suspension, check for these telltale signs:
  • Rougher, stiffer ride
  • Braking, accelerating, and turning is jerky
  • Drifting a bit while turning
  • Lurching forward and downward when you apply the brakes
  • Uneven tire treads because the suspension is not correctly holding up the vehicle
  • Greasy or oily shocks
