You will need the clips for the lip.....and fog lights and harness for wiring. otherwise just use our old hardware off the LS bumper. the "splash guards and inner fenders will not bolt up on the very bottom but thats about it.....I just did mine about 3 months ago.....heres a pic for u.....





Have fun! It looks killer IMO!

All you need are the left and right lower brackets from the SS/Sport models and the bottom of the fascia will fit perfectly on your LS/LT.

Just wire the fogs to your parking lights or low beams. Or if you want the whole set up, get a relay, OEM switch and dash piece.
