    Hi to all in the group. On my 2000 elantra gls its seems that my rear
    shocks/struts seems pretty weak and I have only 40,000 mi on clock, seems
    that it can be a safety issue on the highway and wanted to find out if they
    may be warrantied under my 5/60,000mi, or 10/100,000 mi warranty under being
    a safety issue. They are pretty bad with 4 people in car the car bounces all
    around over bumps on the hi-way and is hard to control, did the bounce test
    on all four corners front seems to stop pretty fast and seem ok,the rears
    just keep bouncing like there is no shocks. Also are fairly simple to
    replace by myself and do the rear springs need to be removed during
    installing new struts and is aligning required after replacing them.
    Thanks for any info.

    The rear struts are covered by the 5/60 warranty. So if you're still under
    5 years, definitely take it in.

    The springs definitely need to be removed to do this job. If you're not
    familiar with using a spring compressor and the safety steps when using
    one, this is definitely a job to send to a professional. A compressed
    spring is very dangerous.

    You shouldn't need any aligning with the job.
