Today I was reading about bumper and bumper cover, I think bumper cover is same thing as we call bumper. The real bumper is the hevy metal that protects your car in a crash and the bumper cover is the plastic cover that goes around the heavy metal and we all call it bumper . well When I know this I think I finaly found my ss front bumper ( cover) .

we all call it bumper but the industry call it bumper covers and they are same thing .

snyone have something to add or more information about difference between bumper and bumper cover please let me know cuz Im not 100% sure if Im right.

The bumper for the SS/NA and SS/SC are the same. I believe the only differen is the SS/SC bumper comes with the slots to attatch the front lip already cut out for you. The SS/NA which is what I have are not cut out for you. They are marked on the back side of it, but you would have to do the work yourself. Be careful with ordering those bumpers from online stores. I did that once and when the bumper arrived it was for an LT not an SS. When I called them up to find out what happened they told me the SS bumper will not fit the LS models, but the LT will fit the SS, so I ended up sending it back to them. In most cases the picture is not what the bumper will look like when it gets to you.

The SS bumper lines up perfectly. You do not have to change anything or sand anything. All of the screws and clips line right up. The only thing is the LS has the LS air dam, you will not be able to use that one with the SS bumper. It is not a very hard job to do, but I recommend that you have another person there with you, it will make for a much faster job. And no the picture is not real. That is how they got me when I ordered that one bumper the first time.

maybe if i purches ss front bumper they will sent me the ss bumper even if the picture shows LT bumper.

What you think?
The best thing to do is see if they have one that is an SS/SC bumper. If they do it should for sure be the SS bumper.

Then you should not have any problems then. There is only one bumper that came on the SS/SC model. If they send you something else, that will be crazy.

The picture is not right, but that should be it. You may want to call their customer service to be safe.
