    Cts v front end and rear end on cts 3.6

    I got rear ended last night and my rear bumper got pretty messed up and the front bumper hit a small side walk and broke the bottom part was wondering. If the front end and rear end fit on the 3.6 being from a same year 2007 v. I couldn't find what mainly I was asking in the other threads. Would it be changing fender wells and all or just the bumpers? Insurance will be doing all the paying that's why I want to do the conversion. Any advise will help thanks.

    The front and rear cts-v bumpers are a direct swap on 03-07 cts's. You shouldn't need different fender wells or anything.

    You will have to change the front fender liners and the bottom splash shield to make it fit right


    It's not so much thr brake air ducts but rhe fitment to the bumper

    Guess I should've researched that one.

    Just so you know......you will have gaps between the lower edge of the wheel liner where it meets the bumper.....and it will be visible from the wheel well area.

    don't forget the bottom grille, you can interchange the top grille but not the bottom. and the fog lights have a different mounting bracket
