I have the bumper and shocks sitting in my garage right now. I will test fit them together, and measure them both, when I get home tonight.

Re: CSL Front Bumper Group-Buy

Can someone answer me on the best way to attach the splitters? is it really drilling a hole and using a push rivet? I just want to check. I want to put this on this weekend.

Re: CSL Front Bumper Group-Buy

What is the best way to mount the CSL splitters? Is it to drill a hole in them and the bumper and use a plastic push pin rivet, like Mr Wolfe? How are others making the attachment?
