Does anyone know if Hyundai changed the design of the rear suspension in LF Sonata? Have they made it any easier to change rear rotors?

The reason I ask:

Changing rear rotors is a PITA in the previous generation (YF; 2011-2014). You have to unhook the upper control arm in order to remove the caliper bracket. Re-installing the control arm is a challenge for an average do-it-yourselfer like myself. I wonder if they still use the same stupid design in 2015+ models.

Quick check at service site appear to be a straight forward swap

Thank you!!

I am looking at buying a used 2017 Sonata. It's good to know that I can swap rotors myself.

Take a peek underneath while loking at car.. dont forget to have a used car inspection by tech of your choosing prior to any commitment on car / exchanging of any money,,, dont want to buy a lemon and find out afterward
