Hello,

This Buick should have two catalytic converters. One of each exhaust manifold.

So, could you tell me why car auto part stores are saying it's three. Two in the front and one in the back.

There is a secondary catalytic component that is part of the center exhaust pipe. Most issues happen with the two primary units.

As long as those converters are the OEM style and meet the emission standards they will work just fine.
Keep in mind that some of the aftermarket converters are not as efficient as they need to be. Ideally you want to get something that has a good customer reviews.
