You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
-Again, there are no good manuals for this car, only older models, not the 1990-92.
Anyways, you will need to rent a spring compressor from Autozone or the like, they will usually refund you when you bring it back. Jack the car and remove the tire on the side you want to start. Compress the spring with your new tool so it doesn't take off when you detach the strut. You will need to remove the bolts connecting the strut to the wheel hub. I believe they are either 14mm or 16mm and there are two of them. Then remove the top nut of the strut. You will need to pop the hood to gain access. It's the one in the center of the housing on the strut tower. The strut should pull out now. Keep the spring compressed until you have the new one back in place. It really doesn't take too long. Good luck!

BIG JOB and you need to have the front end aligned before you drive it. TAke it to a garage.
After some negotiation, I was able to get a Nissan dealer to replace them for about $600, including parts and labor.
It has shocks in the rear I believe. Not struts. Struts are in front.
To replace the front struts on a 2000 model Hyundai Sonata, you will first need to remove the tires. There will be 3 nuts on top of the strut mount. You will need to remove the 2 bolts that connect from the strut to the knuckle. Then you will need to remove the ABS sending unit as well as the front brake hose. Once these components are removed, you can remove the strut. In order to remove the strut, you will need a special tool to compress the spring. Once the struts are removed, you can safely replace them with new struts.
When replacing struts, ALWAYS replace them in pairs.
Compress the shock spring with a spring compressor. Remove the top strut bolt. Remove the bottom strut bolt. Reverse the process to install the new struts.
hou to replace rear struts
Trunk struts are mounted to the back of the trunk. Locate the mounting hardware and remove it. Be sure to use the proper replacement struts and replace each side. Do one side at a time to avoid moving the trunk out of alignment.
Yes because during braking your tire will loose contact with road which will affect our stopping distance. it will also cause waves on the tire and when you do replace your struts you will have a vibration while driving
