I just had my front and back brakes, and the right front axle replaced by an auto repair shop. It cost around $600.
However, right after the changes, the car is now moving up and down a lot even on minor bumps, etc. DEFINITELY a very big change since before the repair. I argued with the mechanics, but they said it wasn't their fault.
Anyway, what do I need to do to get it fixed? They suggested replacing the right-front strut (same side for which the axle was replaced), and then alignment at the same time.
The car is a 1999 Elantra, <60k miles on it. I've already spent a lot of money on it, and don't want to continue dumping money into something I'll get rid of within 1-2 years.
