Yes it does. I have an LS and I put the SS front bumper on. It does bolt up only thing is your LS inner fenders are not long enough for the SS front bumper so there will be a gap at the bottom. I have had mine on for a while now with no real problems.

Here is a picture so you can see.

Get the L + R brackets and you won't have the "gap"!

Yep. Perfectly doable. For fog lights, you'll likely need to just use a relay to have them come on when the low beams are on.

if you want it just for the fog lights, you can purchase grille inserts for the LT bumper that has holes for fogs. all bumper covers according to dealer world have a plastic brackets that smooth the transition between the fender and fascia. strangely though, it shows the LT has 2 bolts that connect the fender and fascia. (each side) the SS i know for a fact has 3 bolts. there are also 2 fasteners on the fascia connecting to the impact bar and 4 connecting to the radiator support beam.
