I replaced the passenger side front shock on my 2009 Mazda 5 almost a year ago. It has been making noises, and upon inspection I see the coil is rubbing on the nearby metal.
I don't know how to check if the parts store gave me the right part, or if I've installed it incorrectly. It attaches via three bolts at the top, and is clamped at the bottom, and I don't see a way to adjust its placement, but I'm probably missing something.
How do I resolve this rubbing?
Per the comment, here's a picture of the strut upper mount. I did not replace any of it, as it appeared to be in good condition, but I do see that the top of the shock is off center towards the side that's rubbing:
