Are there other bearings that fit the bill for our cars?
The Mazda 3 used the exact same parts and has the same risk for clunking, ZX3Matt's wife's 2012 3 was also experiencing the suspension clunk/ rattle or so he had mentioned a while ago before dropping off the forum for awhile.
Short of cross referencing a bearing size and load chart it would be hard to guess as to what bearings would work best in aftermarket situations.
, and other bearing manufacturers may make something suitable, but its going to be hard to keep swapping parts until you find something that works. If its always just the one side is it really the bearing or something to do with that side of the car?
