The cost of replacing a part is a very general question that unless specified exactly is hard to answer. First, is who is replacing the part? Is the Dealer, an independent repair shop, a junkyard, the guy next door or you doing the replacement. These will all yield different prices. Not to mention that within all of these will be different labor rates and different part price mark ups. Second, what is the quality of the part? Is it a name brand, generic (white box, economy), OEM or used part? All of these will be different. Price will even differ between name brands, sometimes significantly. Thirdly, What is the warranty of the part and who is offering the warranty (the shop the parts house or the manufacturer). Limited Lifetime will have restrictions. Lifetime warranty isn�t always the best part either. Fourthly, Each vehicle can have different options that will affect how long it takes to change a part or make it call for a different part. Such as heavy duty cooling system, air conditioning, 4x4�s may have a steel plate that may need removal, Automatic or manual transmission, the list goes on. Fifthly, What additional parts will be required? Long life coolant or standard coolant, R12 or R134a air conditioning freon if it needs to be discharged or replaced? Additional adapters other fluids that may need to be added or changed? All of this will affect price. Sixthly, is the car a new car or an older car? Labor manuals or guides are set up based on a new car. Additional time may be required due to seized or rusted bolts, additional aftermarket accessories that were installed etc. So you can see where there is a great potential for variances. I offer this insight: If you take it to an independent garage like I always recommend, consider how long they have been in business. What is the quality of there work, are they honest? (see the FAQ how do you choose an auto repair shop for additional insights).

I have a 97 Cavalier which I hit a median and have to replace a strut and other parts. For one strut it approx costs 216.00 and for two depending on how many miles you have in your car it would be approx 420.00. (Can B Cheaper)It depends where you shop and get the repair work. Also the miles and condition of your car are big factors too.

It is important to know the cost of replacing parts on a car. For a 2002 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 it will cost between $200-$400 to replace the struts, is a person is doing it themselves.

Yes there is no difference in any suspension parts except the z24 will have a sway bar. so the struts and springs will fit.

Yes they will fit 1995 to 2005 or when they quit making the cavalier. I have 25 years experience in the junkyard busness.

Check for rusted brake parts, and also for partly seized bearing plates on the front struts, causing them to turn in a rough or jerky fashion. Sometimes the struts can be greased but often they need to be replaced.
