In todays edition of, "I don't need no pickup truck!" laugh

In all fairness, that engine is out of a Toyota Echo and the 1nzFE is about as light as a modern 4cylinder gets. The Mazda5 isn't really built for heavy hauling.

Mazda 5.2* - Shock mount:

"The car started making this funny tapping noise..."


 

Good thing I had a set of shocks and mounts on the shelf in the garage.

I think it takes longer to get the tools together and jack up the rear of the car than it does to change rear shocks on one of these.
 

*not the one I was using to haul engines and stuff lol.

The rest of the original exhaust finally fell off Mazda 5.1, but my "temporary" repair from last summer was still solid so I was a bit pleased with myself. 
 

Now I guess I should probably fix it properly with actual new parts.

On that note, the extensive service records for Mazda 5.2 show two occasions of exhaust/muffler repair or replacement, so this one made it a few extra years on  the oem exhaust. Sandusky rust must not be as bad as Metro Detroit rust :P
