Default Swapping Ground Effects

Does any know how to swap the High Sport kit to a regular SS? I can handle the front and rear but am more concerned about the rockers. Are there holes in the frames for the clips? Or is there a difference procedure you'd recommend? Also, can you buy High Sport rocker panel clip replacements anywhere online?

I have the same question... I need to remove rockers from 2004 SS Supercharged and then install them again.
You can find clips on ebay and ClipsAndFasteners.com - Automotive Retainers,Clips and Fasteners unless you know what you are looking for.
Thanks,
Ivo

There are holes in the frame for the clips, and they clips are cheap. You will need two types of clips. The ones that go underneath the car (into the frame) are these..

The you will need the upper clips, that attach to the car like right underneath the doors, those clips are these..

Thank you, TMoney! Will probably just order them through Sturdevant's so I get quality clips. How many of each do I need for each rocker panel?

Don't shoot me for asking (especially since this not a classified post) but if you are going from High sport rockers to the standard SS are you selling the high sport?? Please let me know, because i almost had someone hit us head on 7/3 400 yards away from our cruise night-show. If interested I have my orig SS rockers plus a whole lot of never open clips(GM-10431761)
Thank you

I am also interested in the ground affects. Mine are slightly banged up and would love to get another pair to do some swapping out. I personally really like the high sport myself
