Hey new member here with a recently purchased 97 buick lesabre limited with only 150k miles on it. This is my first GM vehicle I've ever owned, and I have absolutely no history on it. So I stumbled upon this forum while researching. I have been having a lot of trouble finding literally any information on it compared to other vehicles I've owned. I have a few issues I'm trying to fix already, and as a car enthusiast I plan on personalizing and modifying it. It currently has a coolant leak that I believe is the heater core elbows after plenty of research. I also have a problem with the rear air suspension. It is very soft and bouncy and bottoms out on the tires. But it's not consistent. I'm aware it's probably the air shocks that needs replacing but after literally days of research, I've come to the conclusion that they do not make replacement air struts anymore? Is this correct?? I have no interest of converting to conventional spring ride unless I'm able to lower it that way, and like the idea of air ride. I'm looking for customizing mods and interchangeable parts with other models. I want to put fog lights on it but look factory and having trouble as it seems lesabre never had fog lights for 92+99? Anyway this forum seems active and informative and I hope to learn alot from you all, as I plan on having this car for a long time.

Looking at RockAuto, there are several choices for rear air struts.
