Anyone have any idea if roof rails from a Grand Prix will fit on our Impalas? I know they fit on a Monte, but I'd like to know if they would fit on an Imp before I pull the trigger.

They do fit on a Monte Smile

I honestly don't see why they wouldn't fit on the Impala, but I have never seen an Imp with a set.

I'm just not sure if the roof would be the same length.. Any chance you would want to measure your Monte for me?

Well they came on 4-door Grand Prixs, I dont think the Impala would be the only w-body with a different roof length. I am out with my Camaro right now, I can measure if you really need itsometime soon.

I'll measure and compare next time I'm at the local pick-n-pull. I think I've seen them on Regals too.

'03 4dr Grand Prix: 46.25"
'02 Impala: 55.5"
From windsheild to Rear window

How do I know? I own both Laughing
The impala has a considerably longer roof just by looking. The cabin is much bigger looking on the imp, which is why I think the grand prix looks more coupe like. I forget its a 4dr a lot

That sucks, I think they would look good on our cars. I wonder if there is an alternative.

On ebay there's tons of different kinds or accent trims. I'm sure you could find a somewhat triangle shape one that would fit in the groove. And probably made out of rubberized plastic or something
