I need help deciding which shocks/ struts to put on my Sonata. It's a 2000, GLS, 2.5L V6 and I need to replace both rear shocks. I keep seeing KYB this and KYB that, but I am curious about AUTO7's coil overs....what is a coil over anyway? This is what I've found...

Get the KYB, should provide a better ride than the cheap OE shocks....

Word of advice --> Get all new mounting bushings, washers, sleeve, and nuts.. OE mounts were compressed foam, you'll likely find the top washer sitting on the bracket where the upper bush resides.... dealer "SHOULD" have that stuff on hand if they good, as it is a common replacement on XG and Sonata for clunking in rear... may consider sway bar bushings too, as after you firm up the suspension wiith struts and mounts, it'll bring out the slop in the sway bar bushing and clunk there when done.
