Hopefully a solution will be offered:

I'll start, my 323, BJ is making a slight screeching sound when i lock the steering almost all either side, it sounds like its coming from somewhere around the wheelwell, is it brakes or suspension or what, anyone have any ideas?

You put on bigger tires? , you looked at your wheel well and see if the guard come loose ? you see any rubmarks on the the guard

the screeching is like if ur brakepads done, just much quieter, not like plastic or rubber or nuttin, i do have 17" wheels though, but have had them for more than a year now and no problems

So have you physically looked in your wheel well and see if any thing is touching when you lock all the way over.
or you expect people out here to use their crystal ball and figure it out

well i was hoping for the crystal ball method, but i still checked anyway, didnt see anything making contact, and the reason i asked is because many times people may have encountered similar or the same problems and so may be familiar with it.

OK I have a problem. I'm hearing a knocking noise coming from the left rear wheel area. It sounds as if something is slack. The car gets a little unstable at around 140km/h. What should I look for?

turbo drive if you in south go by tone he guh sort you out....
struggler....i dont think anybody is going to sell you just that part because then everything else on the hub assembly would be useless...someone else in work was looking for one and they couldnt get it...i think SS blank him and all...i dunno if they get now...but i wouldnt hold my breath, they dont seem to stock the important parts...then YOU would need to know if what they giving you will work, cause the japanese, sinapore and local madza's have a couple differences in them and SS dont know shiet.

This sounding like a belt lose, failing power steering pump, or wheel rubbing... I doubt it's anything to do with brakes or suspension since the car hasn't moved when the sound is heard.

I'd suggest re-tensioning the drive belts, and maybe swap out the wheel where you hearing the noise, for a standard size one.... these are much easier to do and wouldn't cost you anything, versus going to buy some part that you 'think' is causing the problem.

check the bolts on the control arms...will take 10 min + time to jack the car. careful how you tighten the bolt that affects the alignment.

Thanks Guys. I sorted out the problem. The noise was caused by a dead shock. I still have the problem of the instability though :? . Could this be caused by a bad bushing(s) ?

boy i dunno for a zm engine (got this as a trade for something else) but it rare....you'll get a zl engine 1.5 anywhere...it's almost the same and actual has about 2-3 hp more than the zm...but i think the zm has more torque than the zl....but the zl is easily found...(althought they might try to sell you engine and transmission)
