2016 Mazda 6 rear shock mount question

While changing to winter tires on my recently acquired 2016 Mazda 6 I noticed the rear shock mounts look like to be the same ones used on my old 2006 Mazda 5. I've had bad experiences with these mounts. I replaced them 3 times in about 6 years, it didn't matter if it was OEM or aftermarket they lasted about 2 years once the original ones broke after 3 years of ownership.

Mazda will only sell the mounts with the shocks and I cannot find any aftermarket mounts listed for the 2016 Mazda 6. If they are anything like what is on my old Mazda 5, they will start to fail in 4-5 years time especially for people living in areas that uses salt on their roads in winter.


Here is a picture of the mount for the Mazda 5.
