Beatle Juice/inmate No. 2791267 (see pants in reflection):

Stage 1/2/3 are only for the wide bodies. But you can upgrade to on of their spoilers (it will stick out a tiny bit) or buy one from a vendor/ebay that is shorter.

You can get one from ACS that doesn't required drilling BUT you will need to remove or loosen your Z51 spoiler.

There's other you can buy but you'll need to drill holes for rivnuts. Just make sure its bolt on for the Z51 spoiler or else it'll stick out a bit as mentioned.

he already has the holes in his bumper so no need to get the no drill version.

I've got that same spoiler on my car and like it a lot, but will be interested in seeing how the level 2 spoiler will look on your car.

And wish you the best in your recovery from the surgery.

BTW When you remove the initial spoiler, you have top drop the bumper, there are like 8-10 bolts that are drilled through and have 10mm nuts. unbolt the spoiler and youll have to use a pry tool to detatch the 3m double faced tape.. once you clean it off line up the new spoiler, prep the surface and the tape on the stage 2, pre align it press down on one side add a nut hand tight the other side line it up and press and nut down the rest is obvious tighten the nuts and put the bumper back on whole process is about 75 mins.. BTW I used the box from the spoiler to prop the bumper up... If youre considereing doing the clear tails do it at the same time otherwise youll go through 90% of the crap again in dropping the bumper i attached a vid that will get you through disassembly up top theres like 10 more 7mm screws underneath..

Could use Thread-Serts. They come in many rivet tool kits. I have used them on my Street Rod. They install with a rivet gun with a threaded rod tool end.

Just checked the Stage 2 Aero Spoiler on my Grand Sport. There is 20 1/2 inches between the end of the spoiler extensions. So for a base car, which is ~3.5 inches narrower, you would have ~ 17 inched between the inside ends. Looks like it is plenty of thickness in your spoiler to have the Thread-Sert work.

FWIW

I personally 'cheaped out', bought some rivenuts and the Stage 2 Winglets. Slid the winglets on the respective sides, drilled hole using winglets as a template. Screwed on wing......if you go this route, you will not be able to use the Stage 3 Clear piece as the holes will not align. There is no over-hang on the sides and its looks great. YRMV.
