The technicians at Carrsmith Auto Repair are often asked by our customers in the Gainesville area how much a suspension repair can cost. The suspension system in a vehicle is comprised of ball joints (linkages), shock absorbers and struts, and springs. The role of the suspension is to help the wheels maintain proper contact / friction with various road hindrances. The cost to replace a suspension in Gainesville is generally between $1,000 to $2,200 but can cost more for various luxury cars or specialty vehicles.
