SS kit for 09 sedan?

Hey fellas I'm currently looking for the ss front/rear bumpers as well as the side skirts for my 09 cobalt. If they came painted it would be a huge bonus. Also do they bolt straight on? Or do the coupes fit? I was planning on doing fe5 struts but not too sure of what Springs to use.

Thanks!

They should bolt on, if I remember right. I think the front bumper is the same across the coupe and sedans, but the rear is definitely different and won't be interchangeable between coupe and sedan. Other than that, if you find the SS front and rear bumpers/side skirts, they should bolt on okay. @rrob5382 Didn't you do the bumper swap?

FE5 struts and shocks with Canuck Motorsport springs is the setup I'm using, and I really like it.

FE5 Front Driver Side Strut
FE5 Passenger Side Strut
FE5 Rear Shocks (Need 2)

Rear sedan SS bumper fascia GM# 12336079 might be hard to find but reproductions are availlable.

@Parthros are you running 16" rims or have you gone bigger to 17 or 18" rims? Just wondering what it'll look like. Do you have a pic of your vehicle with this setup? I don't want a lot of wheel arch gap, but don't want to slam it either.

This isn't the right one is it?

Front bumper and side skirts fit coupe or sedan, rear bumper is different but if you can do a little body work the ss rear lip can be fitted to your stock bumper

rrob5382 you are usually bang on but the 09 SS sedan bumper is one of a kind, it's the only one molded with a carve out for the exhaust. And for the front you have 2 choices, the SS sport which is the one posted above or the SS ground FX which has the added lip with all the slots in the bumper. My personal opinion on that is go for the one piece sport bumper, a lot less assle and looks better once finished.

That's what I put on mine.



The other one looks like the red car above in the YourCobalt heading.

Looks exactly like my rear bumper, I thought they all had the carve out there for the exhaust?

So let me get this straight. It looks like the ground fx is just the regular bumper with a lip on it. It seems like I can't find the lip portion of it anywhere, so is it one bumper that looks like it has a lip? I just want the look of the one on the home page. With the lower side skirts, rear bumper (parthero's seems to have found that one) and front bumper.

Thanks,

The lip is a separate piece from the bumper, the version that coby posted just doesn't have slots cut into it for the lip to attach to.
Front bumper without lip installed


Front bumper with lip installed to test fit after some damage repair and primer

Rear bumper cover looks the same but is about 2" longer and wraps around the tail pipe.
