SCRS Members,

When reading Audatex labor report, you may notice “Combination, Frt Susp” Overlap Labor. This is considered labor to raise and support the vehicle. This overlap is in conjunction with another labor value on the repair order.

Section 5-5 glossary of Audatex Terms: Combination Suspension: The Audatex term for raising and supporting a vehicle.

The estimating databases are all intended to be used as a GUIDE ONLY – it is important to remember that the auto body professional performing the repair is in a position to thoroughly inspect, diagnose and identify the methodology and their unique cost of the vehicle damage repair.
