Hey Craig, No, not single mod yet. How about you? Fully stock and 4900 miles. I did get the updated radio remote and I also got the wiring harness. When I have time and when the weather is better and warmer (just had a "Nor'Easter" this past weekend) I'm gonna take a closer look at trying to upgrade the stereo remote. Have you read any recent updates on it?? I read one on the other Hyundai site where a guy list the possible combinations where it will work. It indicates that it can be done with the single cd head unit, but doesn't explain how.

Ordered a billet grille overlay, grille and bumper, just got it today, will install this weekend. Should recv. a lip spoiler tomorrow and will install it this weekend at the same time. Sonata has been clean for the last 5 days because I'm driving the Mustang. Raining here, not like you guys, but raining. Didn't want to work on a dirty car also need the trunk lid clean for the spoiler install and I don't want to rewash. I'll send you some pics when I get this stuff on for your enjoyment.
4900 miles and no modifications....is everything alright? How's your gas mileage doing? Have you posted anything there?
I'm not sure about the stereo control. All the things I read pointed to the 6 disc changer only. I'm happy with what I have unless you can get yours to work without any major modifications to the wiring. I'll be waiting impatiently. Take care man!

I have a 2006 Hyundai Sonata LX and i had the same "knocking" problem. but one day i took everything out of my trunk (including spare tire) and drove real slow, after a few minutes i figured out it is the sloshing of gas in my gas tank. it does no damage to the car and there is pretty much nothing you can do about it, i try to just keep my radio turned up so i can't here it. good luck!

I have a Knock-ka-thunk when making hard right turns. Dealer has been unable to locate it as yet. Now what i have found is a condition where the swaybar has overtravled, driving the passenger side swaybar link into the shock body and denting it. the sway bar also is contacting the lower control arm and touches the coil spring. I have photos of this condition. The dent on the shock body is very noticeable as it has rubbed the paint off and the rub mark is shiny. I do have photos if you can send me you e-mail address I'll send you the pictures. My dealer has not been able to duplicate the condition. I am still working with the dealer to correct this. By the way if you lift the car unloading the suspension the condition the swaybar returns to it's normal position.

How hard do you have to turn to get the rub? Will it be encountered in normal driving?

The rub occurs when I'm making a right turn into a drive way that goes up a hill.
