Went shopping at the junkyard yesterday, managed to find another LS Sport! Very Happy But the bumper was a normal LS and obviously not factory painted, doh! The interior trim, tail covers, and exhaust tip were all there, but not any longer. Wink

This is the second LS Sport that I've found and both were beat to hell and the front bumper either missing or replaced with the wrong one. Why do crappy people always seem to own the most desirable cars??? Evil or Very Mad

The difference is the highly coveted Lower Bumper Extension


Here is my car without it



Here it is on my car

I should take it off the old man's car. He has one but could care less wether it was there or not.

Are those pieces bolt on or tape? Or are they part of the mold?
I like the LSS look. Are there any performance or suspension upgrdes from the LS? And since im asking about differences, what is different between the LS and the police version (in terms of performance and suspension)?
So next time I am at the junkyard I know what to look for.
Nice Impala by the way BB

None of the above... the SS and LSS bumpers have slots in them and there are tabs on the extension. The tabs slide thru the slots and are held in w/ spring clips

It's been discussed numerous times, but you should create a new thread and not gum this one up
