Chevy Cobalt Spoiler

Okay so I have a 05 chevy cobalt sedan ls http://gtcarlot.com/colors/car/1085684.html this one.

I want to add the SS spoiler on the back and take the one off I have on now. Is this possible, if so how hard would it be and do you guys think I should get a black one
05-10 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Wing
Like this on my granite cobalt then tint windows and get rims?
What do you guys think? I really want to get the SS spoiler on my sedan.

I'm pretty sure the holes won't line up with the sedan but it will cover them. Get it I love mine

The base of the wing will cover the existing holes so as long as u seal the wing to the trunk you won't have a problem.

Spoiler from sedan is different from on on a coupe. Couple is bigger spoiler, sedan smaller. If you just want to swap out, Holes don't line up. I Installed sedan spoiler on an LS coupe that didn't have a spoiler and it was a boogie bear getting to the bolts to put the nuts on from inside the trunk lid. The opening to get to the bolts lines up with the correct spoiler for that car. The coupe spoilers verticle posts are taller and set closer together than the sedans. Put the correct spoiler on the correct car. Not sure of the size of the SS spoiler.

I've seen a couple 4 door cobalts and g5's with the SS spoiler. I know it's possible and I believe that Dustin is correct in saying that the base of the spoiler will over the old holes. I would suggest first taking some measurements from the SS spoiler and just double checking that you will be good.

Also, to fully seal your trunk I would suggest getting a small piece of metal (aluminum or stainless steel to prevent rusting) and some silicone and sealing it off. Also, you would have to drill holes into your trunk, so getting some rustproofing onto where you drill would be important (buy it from anywhere that sells spray paint or car parts). Easy and cleanest way would to be use a q-tip soaked in the rustproofing and put a couple of coats.

When you install the spoiler use double sided tape to cover pretty much the entire base of the spoiler and silicone sealant around the bolt/stud that's on the spoiler. I also used extra silicone around the outside of the base but cleaned any excess as it seeped out when it was tightened to the trunk.
