comment Clanging in back of Mazda 3
I checked pushing down on the bumper really hard about 6 times, and the bouncing stops almost immediately after I'm done with the last push (it goes maybe another halfway up, but then stops). I don't see any oil on the struts when I look at them from underneath. How do I check the rubber suspension stop? Is it on the bottom of the strut body? I don't notice any body sway when cornering, although this car has been really good about sway, so it's difficult to tell (I've never really seen any sway). It's possible I'm getting a bit more now than when it was new, but I can't honestly tell.
