Last Saturday I have replaced both sides again - after 2.5y & 12000km only.
The ball bearings were still good, the left a little noisier but far from broken. The problem I had was the rubber. This got squeezed so much that the upper spring pad touched the mounting plate of the strut mount and was scratching and binding there, feelably impacting steering (and of course making clunking noises when turning the steering wheel).
No wonder though if seeing that the part is the same as on the Y3 Sonata - but the Jet weighs min. 400kg more.
The old and new were from Kayaba (KYB ). Hope they improved the material in the meantime. Are there any other manufacturers known to be better than the KYB parts ? Just in case I need new ones again in 2 years from now ...
