    Check all the exhaust system and all the hangers that tie it to the body. Is the noise in the front or the back?

Sounds like it could be dry u joints. Kinda sounds like a squeaky bed? If it is you will need to get them replaced. Just greasing the old ones won't work.

How to change front shocks

The old style shock is not hard to change. Its when you have struts that extra tools are needed.
There is a nut or two on the top of each shock stem. The second nut is often used as a locking device to keep the primary nut from backing off. Many do not use a second nut, but use a washer or lock washer to keep the primary tight.
The bottom fixtures usually have a pair of bolts holding the shock mounting plate to the "A" frame of the suspension.
Some Mechanics keep the weight of the vehicle on the "A" frame when changing the shocks to increase the clearance provided between the ground and the van(floor jack). A van on the hoist has exceptional clearance and it does not matter if the suspension hangs down, you still can fit the shock into its position.
Most nuts and bolts on the front are 9/16th or smaller. The rear shocks use larger bolts.
I would jack the vehicle and spray the backside of the lower bolts with WD-40 or similar a day before attempting to remove the bolts. Broken bolts are a pain, this one procedure could make removal easier. The bolts can easily break from rust.
There are sometimes Sales at Sears or Goodyear or Midas with free Installation. Shops use to charge $5-$10 each to install shocks.

Clicking sound driverside front suspension when driving over bumps. Pushed down on front bumper it makes the same sound. Does it need new shocks/struts or could it be more?

Look at the sway bar( it goes from one side of the car to the other and connects to the lower control arm with a linkage. This link can be broken or the rubber bushings in them may have failed or worked their way out. the links fail often and the parts stores will have them in stock. The struts fail too and you can grab the suspected part and have someone bounce the car and the busted part will show it'self.

Does This Car Have Rear "Struts" Or Shocks?? What Is the Difference?

THe 93 Mazda has both actually. The shock absorber in this car is just one component of the so called strut assembly. Read on if you want the details: Shock absorbers are simple suspension dampers that control the unwanted spring motion of the vehicle's frame caused by the suspension's springs. Struts, or strut assemblies, basically does the same thing, although they are used on a different type of suspension system and performs another function, which is to provide support for the suspension system.

A strut assembly is composed basically of a shock absorber unit, a coil spring, an upper pivot, and a lower control arm. A lot of vehicles today make use of strut assemblies instead of simple shock absorbers for the suspension system. The most popular of these strut assemblies is the MacPherson Strut for the front suspension and its rear suspension counterpart, the Chapman Strut.

Mazda vehicles are well known for their sporty looks and performance, amazing a lot of auto critics when they accelerate on paved streets and highways. Mazda vehicles, however, also has the capability of running on an off-road track without affecting the comfort that Mazda passengers feel; thanks a lot to the high quality Mazda struts they are equipped with. Original Mazda struts are guaranteed to provide every Mazda passenger a pleasurable ride, whatever kind of trail they may choose to traverse.

Suspension noise

With the age of your vehicle, it depends on what the truck is doing.

If the truck walks to one side when you hit a substantial bump replace the shocks, or if you feel the truck swaying to much when you round a hgh speed corner, change the shocks.

If the steering wheel is not doing a good roll when you turn at lower speeds, change the shocks.

If you look at the shocks and they seem a bunch rusted, and/or are leaking change them.

When you stop, if the truck nose dives, change the shocks.

The list goes on, and it depends on how much you value your truck.

SAFETY ......your shocks control alot of what your truck does, bad shocks can lead to a roll over if you take a corner/curve to fast, and this is not meant to scare you...just inform you.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for letting ya
