Rod attached to frame in front of rear wheels rusted thru can it be replaced or repaired auto great shape but rusted there

If this is an alignment rod Bar that you are talking off that goes back to the lower arm and the rust is in that attachment point where it is mounted to the frame Then it can be repaired with a new section being welded it but you will need an accredited welder / panel beater to do the job . If it is rusted through the frame then have the whole frame checked because rust is not always visible until the paint is disturbed. This part is vital to the steering stability and if not done properly will result in serious injury to the driver and others.

Sub frame

Yes it is replaceable, the whole front sub frame will have to be replaced. Auto salvage yards carry these used at a reasonable price, it is a lot of work to do this though.

Actually its a 2000 alero problem im trying to figure out exactly the name of the frame to which the rack bolts on too is there any way a weld job in that area can do the trick ?

It is called the engine sub-frame. As far as welding, it depends on a lot of things like how much rust and corrosion you have and how badly dammaged the frame is. I would recommend taking it by a shop that does this kind of repair and have them look at it and give you some advise on how to repair it.
Replacing the sub-frame with a used one from a salvage yard might be a much better solution.
