trunk lid too unless you want 2 sets of reverse lights. If you want the lower lip (for either G5GT or Cobalt SS) you'll also need new rear inner fender liners.

yeah i forgot to type the trunk. so the tails use the same holes, the same wiring harness? i was just thinking base rear. i do want a lip kit so it will work on the base down the road. i just like the taillights much more.

Yep. They both use the same body mounting holes and wire harness plugs. You'll have to reroute and lengthen the reverse light wires. I read those were also the same type if plug. If not, rock auto has plug ends

Hey that was just a shot in the dark. If I dont like it, but there may be 1 or 2 guys thinking about it. There are like 120,000 of them out there.......but I am not optimistic of a trade. Lol
