Are you the original owner? If not, it sounds like air shocks were previously installed and a seal has given out. If this is the case, you'll need to replace the shock.

    It could be....if the previous owner has altered the suspension (I suspect they did, which is why your tire is rubbing inside the wheel well) you'll spend a good bit on parts restoring the car to its original ride height. The cheapest repair is to purchase a new air shock and replace the busted one, this could cost up to $200 depending on what kind of shock you buy but, you may find yourself back in the same position in a few weeks/months.

Water pump; My 1990 Buick Century is leaking what looks like water or antifreeze, it's probably a mix of both because we have been putting water in the radiator. But everytime I park my car for a...

if you have the cooling system pressure tested this will show where the leak is coming from as there are frost pulgs and intake/headgaskets and other things that could be leaking.but pressure testing is the way to find what is leaking for sure.the rad may be full as it will draw water from the overflow bottle until its empty.if you didn`t have this problem until after the plugs were changed then it could be a hose that is leaking that was leaned on or moved to much.again pressure testing the system will show were its leaking.the whining noise could be antifreeze that has gotten on something causing the noise.

Check engine light on; engine codes P0171 and P0174

p0171 is lean exhaust bank one ( passenger side) and p0174 is lean exhaust bank 2 ( drivers side). First we need to look for vacuum leaks, low fuel pressure, Intake air leaks after the mass air flow sensor, pvc system. Because you have both sides lean I would start looking at these spots.

1989 Honda prelude makes a clicking noise when turning

Sounds like it an outer cv joint on that side. They start making a ticking noise under load and it gets worse as time goes on. Have a shop look it.You'll need a pretty well stocked tool box if you want to do it yourself.
