SOURCE: can the air struts {rear}97 buick lesabre be

Yes, but the cost may be more than it would cost to replace the air bags. I'm not sure, but I believe that on your vehicle there are springs with struts. But, yes, you shouldn't even have to drill holes, they should already be there.

SOURCE: Change rear gas struts on 98 Buick Lasabre

No, it isn't...
You need:
-20" breaker bar
-torque wrench
-Liquid wrench (or WD-40 if you don't have any)
-Jack and stands
-sockets to fit all of the connections

1. Remove the back seat:
Bottom cushion comes out by pushing it rearwards and lifting, undo the 2 seatbelt bolts and 2 push nuts and remove the back cushion

2. Jack and support the frame of the car
3. Remove the wheels
4. Place a jack under the control arm where the spring connects to it and put a little tension on the spring. (this is so that when you unbolt the strut the control arm won't come crashing down)
5. Remove the air tube by rotating the spring clip 90 degrees and pulling on the tube at the connector.
5. Remove the lower strut bolts. (Exprerience shows me that removing the lower one first will save you lots of agony...)
6. Remove the two strut mounting bolts that are behind the back seat cushion.
7. Compress the strut and remove from the vehicle.
8. Installation is opposite of the removal. Remember to use a new mount if the one you are removing is worn. I recommend Quick-strut 171798. Good Luck!

P.S. Torque Specs are:
Lower Strut bolts- 140 ft/lbs
Upper strut bolts- 30 ft/lbs
Mount to strut bolt - 70ft/lbs

SOURCE: I need new front struts, back air shocks, and a engine mount

If you are looking to replace the shocks on this Deville, you could be looking at a price that you may not like. With all the different components to the air ride system it is a good idea to go with a conversion kit that allows you to get away from the air all together by using a coil spring conversion. Strutmasters offers great kits at a great price with a lifetime warranty. I would rather pay half the price to fix my car and have the parts be warranted than buy expensive parts for the car not knowing its going to fix the problem and have no warranty with it. Check them out!

Is the shocks, struts, ball joints, bearings, calipers and ignition module & coils, also fuel pump from a 93 Buick park avenue the same as a 95 Buick Riviera?


The short answer is no.
Some of the parts may fit, but most are different part numbers.
The engine codes are different, and you would need to look the part numbers up online and compare.
I know the ball joints are different, so the rest of the suspension and brake parts are probably different too.
The coils and fuel pump might interchange.

How to replace rear air shock on 1992 buick parkavenue


Pretty sure your car has struts on the rear and the shock function is part of the strut. Replacing struts is more difficult than replacing shocks and they should be replaced in pairs.

2000 Buick LeSabre Struts


Yes there are struts on the front and shocks on the back. 2 of each. They are around $50-100 for the fronts. $30-100 for the rears depending if the car has air ride or not.
