There is no Mazda specific strut bearing for the Mazda 3, only the exact same motorcraft bearing repackaged as a Mazda part number in a secondary bag for more money than the original motorcraft part. Some of the reported fixes included swapping for the ST front struts and top mounts with new motorcraft strut bearings or modifying a set of koni yellows from a Mazda 3. Some people also have quite foci without going to such extremes.
