Default Strut tower rust

Ok.. is there anywhere I can find replacement strut towers? My passenger side is pretty rusted but not unsafe thankfully. But I'd like to fix this before it gets worse.

You'll only find something like that in a junkyard. You'll have to cut out the old part and weld it into place. The car is unitized construction so it's not going to be able to be bolted in. The coupe is not the same as the sedan/convertible. You might be able to get what you need from a Sebring, Dodge Stratus or Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe from 2001 through 2006. Good luck.

That's so not the news I was hoping for lol. But I had figured as much. I just bought this car a week ago and it only has 80,000 miles. Thank you for the response tho.

If the metal is still strong, just sandblast the rust off and paint it well. If there are weak spots, you can probably get a good body shop to weld in some reinforcements where needed.
