Personally, I don't much care for it. It's a flashy attention grabber and that just doesn't jive with my philosophy. It also impedes rear visibility so I hear.

When it comes to modding, my school of thought is if it doesn't make you go faster, turn better or stop sooner, it just isn't worth buying. But I'm a minority thinker when it comes to aftermarket stuff so it's better you get a few more opinions.

Im putting an ss wing on my LT. I would definitely have your car lowered if not already because with stock suspension and an ss wing it looks completely dumb. will post pics in a couple of days.

It's all on what you like,if you want an ss wing go for it! I got the ss wing on my ls, but now I would rather go wingless.

Only if you drop the balt and go with the ss kit(skirts, bumpers) than ok. But I have seen it a lot here and its nasty on anything less than a real ss or clone. I had one on my Cobalt LS for a week and hated it. I only had it because a guy with an SS wanted wingless and we traded in agreement with a 3rd guy that I would swap with him for his low rise because he wanted the high rise but had to wait for him to be free to swap.

I liked it on my SS, I had many tell me to go wingless but I liked it and it was nice when people would get in that spot behind you at night where you'd normally get blinded by their lights and it blocked that.

I like my wingless, and I wouldn't put the highrise on the base unless you have the SS body too.

high rise on a non ss model looks whack and I (most people) hate it, however it's your car but since you asked...

I like the wing looks... I have one on my ls. I am lowered, no ss ground effects, but I get people tell me they like it all the time. There have been a few people that preach wingless that said it looked good because of the color of the car.... All in all its really up to you.
