First I took my car to dealer they said both rear struts need to be replaced?

What does the car have? I see shocks and separate spring on frame...
Does it use shocks?
They said only rear were bad, so can I only replace rear? or does it benefit to replace all?

**I want oem suspension or comparable
2010 Versa Sedan 1.8 S

***UPDATE: today when driving over some speed bumps I slowed down to like 1-2 mph and right after the front wheel went over the bump it was smooth, then the rear wheels made a bang noises like it bottom out or something, can someone plz elaborate why? What could be wrong?

how can they be bad? On a 2010 would this not be covered under warranty? Unless you loaded the car with 2klbs in the rear how could you have possibly blow your struts/shocks?

I have no idea which the Versa uses btw. I should look into that :D.
One of the rear tire has spot wear all around the inner tire thread. The car isn't covered under the bumper to bumper warranty, car has 38k miles on it.
Bumper to Bumper: 36 months / 36,000 miles
I bought the car like this, then when went in for oil change they found it. Dealer bought car said they won't cover it. Why would it be like this?

Did you buy it fron a nissan dealership, or just a random used car dealership? And how long ago did you buy it. Most cars come with a 30 day warranty, and if there's a serious issue they need to fix it.
I bought it more than 30 days ago from a ford dealer.

Did you feel the suspension bottom out?
At any rate, you need to get under there and check things out. The louder the banging, the easier to find.
I felt like the rear suspension bottom out and as the rear wheels went over the bump it felt like the shocks/ wheels hit something.
