Exclamation SS Bumper Onto LS ? Possibly..

Well I'm thinking about ordering a SS front bumper cover for my 06 LS sedan. I finally found a site that sells the SS front bumper.. Rockauto.com. What do I need to put the SS bumper cover on my LS ? Do I just need the SS bumper cover and the SS inner fenders ? Does it matter what year of bumper and fenders I order ?

I will have no problem doing the wiring for the fog lights. Just need to know what I need to do. I'm also going to order a new grille when I order the bumper.


Also, what is the difference between the LS/LT rear bumper, and the SS rear bumper off the sedan ?

The ss rear bumper goes down farther than the ls/lt rear bumper.

Do you currently have fogs? If not you will need a full mounting kit since your bumper did not come with it.

All front bumpers should fit on all cobalts. Bolt locations are the same.

Without the whole kit, that bumper will look like shit. Buy the sideskirts and the rear bumper before you pit it on

Yeah, not a fan unless you have the side skirts. Just looks akward.

Probably can find them on another forum. No one here is selling them that I am aware of. Otherwise Ebay might have them.
