- Genesis Model Type
- 1G Genesis Sedan (2009-2014)
Replaced my rear shocks today with OE and wanted to report on the condition of the originals. My 2012 3.8 has 71,380 miles on it and I was getting bounced around a bit at highway speeds when hitting slight depressions in the road. The right rear was shot. When I compressed the shaft it would not extend outward at all and was pretty easy to compress. The left rear was not as bad but extended back out at only half the speed of the new one and was also easier to compress than the new one. What a difference in ride quality with just doing the rears! If you are over 70k on your originals, it's probably time for some new ones. I'll be replacing the front strut cartridges in a couple of weeks, also with OE.
