Hello, I need to replace the rear shock absorbers of my Hyundai Veracruz 2009. It looks like I need a self-leveling shock absorber (I was told my car came with it, Hyundai part 55320-3j000 and 55321-3j000). These cost about 4-5 times the price of a regular one. Could I replace it instead with a regular shock absorber (Hyundai part 55310-3J110)? What would be the problems if I do so?
Thank you, Emerson

Thank you for your patience,
Thank you Mike!
Could you elaborate a bit more? What is the difference between them? One is more durable than the other? Will the mechanic have to adjust the non self leveling whereas the self leveling does it on its own?
In sum, if you could explain a bit more how they work so that I understand why the end result would be the same... The price is so different ($100 each for the non self leveling and $500 each for the self leveling) that I would like to be very sure I am not compromising in safety.
Thank you again,
Ok. Take your time. Oh... If expanding the question is allowed, please let me know if shock absorbers from the company KYB are fine to use (instead of the original ones from Hyundai).
Sure. KYB 344500 is what I have in mind based on my research. It is a non self leveling shock absorber.
