Bit late for this answer but I'd still like to share.
There are many parts involved in a car's suspension, so it depends on what part you're trying to replace. For example, a major suspension work to be done on a car, both front and rear, where parts like lower arms, link rods, front and rear shocks and sway bars are to be changed, cost would go upto around 35-40k. This cost could significantly increase by another 10k at least if the steering rack too needs changing.
Front suspension cost around 3700 each and rear around 3k.. labour charge would be around 3k
U can do the math
