The part number I have on my invoice is C2Y6-28-10XA. Interestingly this number was supplied by the Mazda's service rep to my dealership's service manager and can not be found in the parts dept. system yet . I think that because this may be a bit of an experiment on Mazda's part they may want to see if this works before authorizing it for general circulation? Who knows but there you are.

This is what Impex says about the part number. Perhaps it is from another similar vehicle like Madza3?
( OEM part number: C2Y6-28-10XA / C2Y62810XA )
List Price: $86.94 :: Impex Price: $66.07
Availability: Typically ships in 1-3 days

I also called my buddy at Riverside Mazda and the part number came up on his billing mainframe but when he try to run it on the Mazda ordering/cataloging program it came up as invalid and he couldn't see what vehicle it applied to either. It may be too new yet for the dealers to have info on this part/fix. It could be in the early stages of becoming the official replacement part for the rear suspension noise bulletin. I guess we will have to wait a little longer and check back again. My other question is if and when they release this part, is it going to come complete with bushings, brackets, and perhaps links if the original links do not work??
Lets keep this thread updated as info becomes available...

Like I said in my earlier post after looking underneath a new M5 I'm pretty sure its just the 2012 Mazda5's new and improved part. I didn't mention in my earlier message that the service manager and I looked at the sway bar assembly for a new 2011 Mazda 3 and they were defineately different from the replacement part I recieved. But who knows I suppose anything is possible.
#315 of 359 Rear Sway Bar Bushings
Oct 11, 2011 (4:24 pm)
We got some rain last week and my rear end started squeaking. I looked up the TSB once again and got the part number from the bulletin (#C243-28-156-C). I called my buddy at Mazda and gave him these part numbers to check if he had them in stock. He told me that they had been superceded to #C243-28-156-D and that he had two in stock, so I picked them up and I noticed that these new updated bushings seem to be a bit harder in consistency and they also have ridges on the inside where they meet the sway bar in contrast to the ones I had on. Hmmm, we will see.

Good evening from Winnipeg. I had those particular bushings( ie. 156 - D) installed at the begining of August and they were already starting to squeak when I recieved my new sway bar assembly early last week. I hope yours last longer than my did.

I know that I am replying to an older post but have recently developed the same noise you described (clunking) coming from the rear end that sounds like something is loose and knocking the car frame.
Did you ever find out what that noise was? and were you able to get it fixed?
Thanks in advance.

We will see how long they last. I live in sunny SoCal and the only time they start to squeak is when they get wet like when it rains. After the rain stops it takes about 3-5 days and then they stop squeaking. We will see. Keep us posted on your massive rear sway bar/beefy bushing replacement. Thanks!

If I am not mistaken the rear clunking noise relates to a weld spot (knub) that has to be grinded off because it dis-places the seat of the suspension spring. Have it looked at, that should be the fix.
