    Default Leaking Rear Shock - Knocking Over Bumps

    Hello all,

    I have been hearing a weird thump/knocking noise from the rear wheels when I go over even small bumps. I had a feeling it was a leaking shock. I had a look at the shock (in the wheel well) and sure enough, the rear left shock was soaked in liquid (on a dry day). I had my winter tires put on at the dealership yesterday and the dealership was able to confirm that the shock was in fact leaking. They quoted me $700 plus tax to have the shocks replaced ($350 each).

    SO it seems to me I'm on my own since it isn't covered under warranty either.

    Is there any one who knows a mechanic that that can do the job properly but with a fair price? At the very least, can someone tell me where to find the part BBN528910C at a better price?

    I don't need anything fancy, just need to get the job done - I am not too rough with the car (sometimes it needs it though I must say)

    Thanks, and sorry for the long post - trying to be as detailed as possible.

    WTF $700!?!?!

    The shocks, just parts for a PAIR is $300 and it takes about 20 minutes to swap both.


    I have a spare set of used 2010 speed 3 shocks with ~45,000km on them. I'll sell you them for $200 including install if you come to me.

    Hey thanks a lot for your reply. I tried to search for the part at onlinemazda but they only seem to ship to the US (unless I'm just not doing it right). I have heard of streetpower before, I'm just waiting on a call back with a quote. @Some Guy I like the offer, where are you located?
