Thanks for the update. Well first let me advise that I took the car into La Quinta Hyundai and they just screwed me for 180.00 and no improvement. I then went to Palm Springs Hyundai and after replacing the entire strut snubbers, top strut mount and all bushings the car now is like new or better. It will never be a sports sedan but it was never built to be one. So one thing is for sure that the Palm Springs service department correctly diagnosed the problem and corrected it. $600.00 is a lot cheaper than having to buy a new car to get rid of the noise.

Glad to hear you were taken care of, there's a lot of Azera owners who are not and they don't know either. What's even worse is the service depts. aren't explaining all the possibilities either from laziness or just lack of knowledge of their own product.
Another thing to mention, my mechanic also told me that if you replace the struts, go with the KYB's as they are better tuned for the foriegn cars vs. the Monroe strust which are tuned for the domestic makes. Lastly, he also mentioned that a car of my mileage, I should also consider replacing the strut spring as that could weaken and put more stress on the strut as well. I found the springs online for like $86.
Maybe you can keep us posted on how long you're able to go noise free now that you've gotten all the components replaced.

Jamazera...I am ordering my bushings from www.rockauto.com (where I get almost all my parts now). The set I'm ordering is just under $7 and I believe it's only 2 bushings. The labor (from what my mechanic told me) is 2 hours, so I'll be paying $198 to get $7 worth of parts installed. SMDH What can you do? LOL
Have a happy Easter if you celebrate, if not...have a great weekend!!!

The coupe, right? I test drove those and they are a hoot to drive, but since I commute into DC daily, I prefer to not have my ride be that sporty.
I'll be keeping the Azzy for awhile, but I've got my eye on either a V6 Genesis sedan. The only way I would get the V8 is if I got the 5.0 R-Spec.

We also drove the Genis coupe and found it very small and is no comparison to the full size Gensis sedan. It was rough riding, hard to see out of the rear window and just a general noisey little four cylinder that did not do anything for us.

Yeah...I think the 4 banger appeals to the tuner crowd mostly. If I were to get the coupe, it would have to be the V6 version. Nice amount of power and pretty fun to drive, just can't use it as my daily driver. Definitely not to be compared in any way to the sedan. But, if you compare it to the old Tiburon...leaps and bounds better!!!
