Question Struts on '01 Hyundai Santa Fe

I have an '01 Hyundai Santa Fe with just under 36K miles on it. I've begun to notice a lean/roll when going around a corner, and a loud pop sound when going over a speed bump or hitting a chuckhole. Am I looking at replacing struts on this vehicle already? I read another post on this board about a Toyota not needing struts until after 100k.. Am I going to see replacement necessary this early on this vehicle?

Thanks in advance,
Dave Frandin

Should still be under warrantee? Bring it back to the dealer let them check it out.

May not be a strut, could be problem with sway bar or sway bar link.

That problem should be able to be diagnosed. If you have a bad strut, it shoud be obvious. As for you comment about the 100K on a Toyota, remember one thing. A Hyundai is definately not a Toyota or even close. That whole car is pretty well used up at 100K.

You have a 10 year/100K mile warranty. Dont even sweat this, just take it to your local dealer and let them fix it. I am a Hyundai/Kia tech and I can tell you that you should not have any problem with shocks or struts on this vehicle unless it has been abused.
Desi..... Good answer. I work on these things every day and I can agree with you on that for sure.

Thanks all for the good advice.. I have to take the car in for a service bulletin I just recieved regarding the front oxy sensor, and I'll have them check out the struts while it's there..
