A Sunfire is front wheel drive, so there should not be a rear axle. There is a rear strut, the hub and bearing is bolted to the trailing arm and strut. The tire and wheel bolt to the hub. I would get two estimates for repairs before making a decision. It could have under-body damage too.
to replace a strut you will need to buy the whole new strut and find a way to compress the spring after you have removed the strut from the vehicle. you will need to put the spring on your new strut. the strut will usually have three bolts under the hood and about two connected to the steering knuckle. in a shop they usually charge anywhere from 50 to 80 dollars an hour and it just depends on how long it will take them to do the job for you. you can always call and get a quote.
Look at the tire information label located inside your driverside front door or door jam, it will specify what tire size to use and to what properly inflate the front and rear tires on your particular car.....
Has the vehicle been in any accidents on that particular corner of the vehicle may possible have a bent rear strut? Do you know if the rear camber is out of manufacturer spec Does the tire look like it leans in to far? GM did not provide a rear camber adjustment for this vehicle but cam bolts are available to correct some of this adjustment another option is elongating the one of the holes in the strut where the lower strut bolt attachs to the knuckle to provide adjustment. Would take this and have an alignment performed to see if if the rear adjustment can be corrected with suggested methods.
Yes, just make sure you purchase a set of tires that keep the total diameter of the wheel/tire as close as possible to the OEM size. Otherwise your speedometer/odometer will be off, and you will adversely effect handling and fuel mileage.
