2007 Mazda 5 Repair Question
Is there a permanent fix for the suspension problems in the Mazda5?
have your suspension parts checked by a pro to see what is exactly worng first. If these parts area problem then'i'd suggest going to a Mazda forum boarda s i'm sure someone there has found a fix for it. the only problem woudl be if the fix fixes what's wrong you may not care for the way the car rides/handles after that.

I have a 2007 Mazda 5 with 80+k miles. My car was stolen and joy ridden, so I had the same problem, a knock by your feet from the front. You need to replace your Macpherson struts and rear shocks. Get a good brand if you want to keep the car. Mac struts are integral to the alignment, so you need to have that done, too. If you are really going to keep the car, get a lifetime alignment deal. It costs more, but you can go back as often as you want. I also had to get a rear wheel camber kit, too. Did all the work myself. Mac struts, about 2 to3 hours each, rear shocks about 1 hour each, and the camber kit about 2 hours each.

I had this and had every part of my suspension changed and it cost me a bomb! I had a service at Mazda and they notices straight away my shock absorbers were leaking!
This cost me £100 for parts and labour and the noise has gone!
