The area can be repaired but the cost should be considered against the rest of the car condition
if there are other rust areas, there are a lot of miles on the speedo, you have other faults that you are living with, it may be better to junk it and upgrade
you will have to get a diagnosis from a suspension shop or body/panel repair shop and a quote before making that decision

What kind of rear struts do i need if i want to tow with a 99 buick lesabre?


Here's my tip.... Your springs are what holds the vehicle up, the shock absorbers or struts are to stop it bouncing. Sounds to me like your springs are too soft and cannot hold up the load you are trying to carry.

What is dynaride?


Dynaride means that your rear shocks have electronic level control. There is a sensor mounted to the rear suspension. If you add some luggage or persons to the car the rear lowers. The sensor senses this down movement and starts the air compressor which is mounted in under the hood (left fender area). This compressor pumps air into the rear shocks compensating the additional load, so the car remains at proper level all the time. If you start the engine with a delay of about 20 secs the compressor should run for a view seconds to build up the minimal pressure the system needs. If the engine is stopped also with some delay of 30 sec. the release valve opens to vent out all the air.

My sisters 95 buick lasabres k member rear bolts have rusted off, i am resonalbly mechanical, what will it take too fix this?


If you are talking about the front cradle you will have to get replacement bolts from a dealer or a junk yard if they are in good shape and if you lower the cradle hope you can grab what is left of the bolts and turn them out or you may have to drill them out.
