This model Buick used a hydraulic lever arm type shock absorber. I did a little surfing for you to try to find rebuild kits, but didn't do any good. I did find a rebuilt unit that fits the left rear, but just the one costs $225, so if you were able to find all 4 of them, you'd have almost $1,000 invested. I know what I'd do. I'd fabricate some brackets and install conventional tube-type shock absorbers on the car.

Oh, and by the way, the best 50 bucks you'll ever spend on the car is to get the original factory service manual. Faxon has the 52/53 manual on CD....
