Re: Best Front Bumper

I got mine at Pick N Pull.
Come to think of it, I bought most of my body/interior parts there.

Re: Best Front Bumper

If you can still get a GM bumper, that's the only one I'd even consider new. Fitment on all aftermarket body parts is TERRIBLE. Best bet for the money is a used original.

Re: Best Front Bumper

i got an aftermarket one brand new, and aftermarket one used (thought it was a GM bumper) and they both got wavy from the sun. got a used GM bumper and never had the problems. try to go original if you can, otherwise it wont wind up right.

You need to find a better one if you don't like the one you got.
What are you looking for,Chevy or Firebird?
