That is a job left to a mechanic, as it requires speacial and expensive tools. Also note, doing it yourself can resuly in serious injury or even death, due to the replace ment of the springs when working on the struts.

If this is a job you have no knowlege of, its best to leave it to a professional.

Also not, that the car will require a front end alignment after the struts have been replaced.

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.

SOURCE: Buick LeSabre left front window will not close

Don it. Good half day for amateur. Get Chilton 86-99 Bonneville, 88, Lesabre manuel.. Tricky to find bolts are under end flaps on door close handgrips. Took me a day to figure that one out. Others under light at lip of back of door. Book indicates to strart with window 3/4 up if you can. Flip up window control at rear of panel. After all screws are out raise outer edge of armrest and look for notches 4" and 11-1/2" from rear of armrest to slide inward to remove. There are screws under the door handle too. Screws everwhere. When pulling bottom of panel from door lift with a notched bar to avoid tearing the fasteners out of the cardboard panel. Two screws behind seatbelt notch at top need to come out to allow positioning the glass. The panel at the bottom of the top opening can be removed for more fredom in positioning the glass when reinserting the ball in the lower track on the window. Tape glass with duct tape to keep it from falling. Drill the factory rivets that hold the old regulator and I replaced with stove bolts with nylon locknuts slotted head to the inside the car. Can't remember the size, probably 1/4 or 3/16". Remove speaker if in front bottom of door to use your hand to do work in the door. You must twist the regulator forward with window 1/2 down to remove the ball from the socket in the bottom sliding metal track at the bottom of the window. Don't drop the window after removing the socket, tape it in place. Don't know what you do if you cannot move it to 1/2 up position. By the way, the body shops say you must use rivets, not screws or it will shift, but I have had no problems with the screws for reinstallation several years old. The rivet they use take a big hydraulic pop rivet gun that you won't have. Good luck, I don't envy you. Need to do other window on my 91. The window control may not be the same on the Custom, mine is the Ltd. you may be able to remove the motor from the regulator in the door without removing the regulator if you can figure out how to get the bolts that hold the moter to the regulator. inside the door.

SOURCE: I am looking to replace the rear struts of my 97

If you're replacing the springs as well, you can put regular shocks/struts in. The springs on that car didn't offer full support as they were designed to work in conjunction with the support from the air struts also. Just make sure the new springs are specified for a car without air ride. You will also need to remove the fuse/relay for the air ride compressor because the veh. goes through a "air pressure replenishment" cycle every time the key is turned to run. The compressor will then run for 7 minutes until it times out when it determines that it isn't doing anything to ride height.

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.

Does a 2001 buick lesabre have shocks ? if so how much does it cost to replace?


Ok first of all your car has shocks in the rear and they are not very hard to replace or terribly expensive. The front has what they call struts which in effect are shocks with a springs wrapped around them as an assembly. Replacing struts can be expensive and will probably need to be changed by a shop if you are not equipped to do it yourself. You will most likely need to get the wheels aligned as well. I recommend calling around to different shops for a price. My guess for new front struts installed plus the alignment is $300-$400.

I have a 2002 buick lesabre limited and my car is leaning on the passanger side is that the struts?


The vehicle is supported by coil springs. On the front the coil is part of the strut assembly. If you jack up the side of the vehicle that is low (jack under the subframe or by the pinch weld) you sould be able to see if the spring is broken or not.

If it is there is a solution called a "quick Strut" this will be a complete strut assembly that is completely assembled. All you will need to do is remove the old one, install the new one, and have the vehicle aligned.

It is recommended to do these in pairs (both fronts or both rears or all four at the same time, the rears are usually shocks or air shocks).
the other alternative is to replace the spring. the strut will need to be installed into a spring compressor in order to replace the coil. It will still need to be removed from the vehicle and brought to a machine shop or service facility to have the spring replaced. It is a good idea to replace both springs and struts at this time. You will find with a little price shopping that it is not that much more to go with quick struts.
