the old elantras and accents have problems with the struts siezing up; especially if the vehicle has been lifted/jacked recently.
i see at least a few elantras/accents at the shop every week with locked up struts, its very very common. i am a hyundai tech, so trust me i see this a lot.
to replace the struts you will need a spring compressor and common hand tools.
check the front struts as well, they all tend to go around the same time, push down on one corner of the car at a time, if the car does not come back up after you release pressure, the strut has siezed/locked up.
DO NOT attempt to replace the struts if you dont have a spring compressor...that spring can really mess your day up if you dont properly compress it before removing that top nut.

jack front of car up clean around the coil spring where it sits on the shock absober probably do this with your fingers and a screw driver to clean the grit out, then squirt some oil on he bottom of the spring and where it sits on the shock absorber do the same with tho other side.might have to repeat every 3 months especially in winter
