Question about 2004 Mazda Tribute
I have an 04 tribute with 80k miles and the front suspension is making a knocking/rattling noise when I go over even the smallest bumps and at slow speeds. I took it to a service station and they said I needed new struts/mounts, sway bar links, and rear shocks. Is there any way I can see for myself if either of these are causing the problem. Just trying not to get taken by the service station.
Could also be a bad strut bearing if it does it at a stand still or you start hearing a twang sound it's in the strut section usualy also you might want to look at your lower controll arm bushings they will wear out sometimes faster than others and other bushings also look arround heck crawl under if you can and dont be afraid to us a desk lamp for light if you need it who cares what the neighbours think they dont pay for the repairs you do

I have a similar problem with an 02. It was fixed yesterday for $106.00 by replacing front swaybars @ GlenAllen Motors in Toronto.They are great for solving my car problem cheap and fast.
Sorry for all the people not close to TO.

I have the same problem with a 2006, V6 AWD. I checked everything this morning and I am pretty sure the rattling is due to the rear engine mount, the one near the firewall. I will take it to a shop this week to get their opinion.
Another source of rattling is the plastic collapsible cover inside the fromt coil spring. They are hard plastic and rattles inside the coil spring.
