    Default 2014 Mazda 3 GS 2.0L Manual

    Hello,
    My Mazda has been making a slight noise on the left side, from the front while going over bumps. I got it diagnosed on Sunday with a general mechanic (the only one who was open) in Montreal. He suggested to replace the struts. I have 140k km, mostly on the highways (90k in the last 2 years). I am having a hard time finding strut assemblies in Hamilton area. Any suggestions about the supplier or the issue.

    Thanks

    The mechanic put it up on the lift, it did not look like endlinks were bad.
    It is bizarre that I cannot buy quick strut assembly in Canada. I tried NAPA, Mazda, Canadian Tire, bunch of online.....

    They sell Monroe Quickstruts at Canadian Tire here in Toronto so they should there (?). Try their online store, they'll deliver to your nearest CT I believe.

    Okay I take that back. I just checked online and also the Monroe site and they don't carry the Quickstruts yet for your model year yet.

    Maybe you should just look at replacing the struts alone with a good aftermarket?
