    I won't know but, the mechanic says all four 'springs' are broken and I need to replace all four 'something'.
    The car has 311 thousand miles on it so, may be a lot of wear and tear over time and this incident caused to to totally brake down.

    if he said springs, then i will assume you do not have air suspension.
    we install quick struts which are complete units made by monroe. the fronts run around 249 per side.
    the rears run around 299 per side.
    the labor is 1.9 for the front and 2.8 for the rears. add an alignment for 79 and hope there is no further damage to the suspension.
    it is pricy but needed.
