I have 68,000 miles on my Santa Fe, and it honestly never rode that well. Do any of you guys have any updates to the suspension to get a much better ride than I am getting? Shocks, springs, etc. I want comfort more than anything else.
Thanks.

What drive train do you have? I put Monroe struts in. They are better than the stock struts. Tires choice can also help. Mine is a 3.5l AWD, and I realize it will never have a soft ride with all the un-sprung weight of the drive train.
I test drove a front wheel drive Luxus ES 350, and an all wheel drive GS 350. The ES had a smoother ride and steering than the AWD GS. All that weight makes a difference.

Do you have 18inch wheels? The 17 will ride smoother.
You may also try 2-3 psi less pressure in tires.
Honestly I wouldn't change struts just because of the ride quality. That's what the car was tuned to and putting in different brand of struts based on someone very subjective opinion might be quite expensive game. For me, my Santa drives too soft so I put 3psi more in tires and I'm happier.
