    Had the front suspension checked as it was rattling. Caliper bolts were a bit worn probably because the grease had dried out already. Parts are on order and they just shimmed it with some teflon tape and more grease for a temporary fix.

    Engine mount is also due for replacement. It's not totally collapsed yet but it's getting there.

    Mhonworks pa rin. Inagahan ko lang baka mahaba na pila sa hapon. May mga long-term jobs kasi sya so limited ang slots. Best to set an appointment for heavier jobs.

    Nice, thanks for the tip!

    Drop by ako minsan sa shop nya para pa check yung left CV ball joint at axle boot leak na nakita ko sa previous PMS sa casa.

    Iniisip ko baka doon na lang din ako magpa change oil para malapit lang sa residence ko.

    If wala sa struts, Try mo sir yun engine support under the car battery, Try to replace it if it's already worn out based on my observation it carries most of the weight of the engine esp on that side kaya mabilis siya bumigay. Replaced mine and never heard the funny irritating noise pag nalubak yun car

    the noise is irritating especially when going over smooth humps or consecutive pot holes.. first, i suspect the strut bearings were shot so i bought 2 pcs brandnew!

    so i decided to inspect the strut last weekend. per my assessment, its more of a design flaw.. the strut bearings were fine, i pry it open to clean and re grease.. the problem is that the strut bearings cannot locate the springs properly in the center resulting to minute side to side movement of the spring..

    upon inspection, i can clearly see the movement marks on top of the spring against the strut bearing. btw, the strut bearing body is made out of polymer plastic.

    bottomline, the "spring protector" does not protect the spring from making contact with the strut bearing, but its function is to more to maintain the spring in the center and avoid that side to side movement.

    mazda should also redesign the strut bearing to properly locate the spring in the center!

    a good rubber hose cut in the middle wrapped around the spring to fill in the gap solved the problem
