Most aftermarket 98-02 SS spoilers have a higher lip at the very back. Also where the spoiler mounts on the sides, the piece directly in front of the spoiler should be flush with the spoiler.

The rear spoiler is a thermo-formed ABS composite. ITis a two part spoiler that is bonded to each other to make one unit. There is two SS spoilers, 96 & 97. This is with out center bars. 98 to 02 has center bars. Both are composite,look in the brake light hole and you will see paint numbers for the brake bulb if it is a used oem spoiler. The line number is also in there.

Well the spoiler was repainted at some point and time. The guy said it was off a red 01 SS and he painted it black. As far as the brake light goes there isn't one. The guy said it was missing when he got it so he had the hole for it filled in and painted over. You can still see where it use to be though. I looked under the spoiler and the only thing I could find was under the drivers side. It had some numbers and letters: CSD-165XX(couldn't read the last 2 numbers), ASM#10087, SMC, and MADE IN CANADA. So I'm still not sure.

All of the aftermarket ones are a one piece design.

Well I looked at the back lip and didn't see a seam. I don't know but maybe it could have been coverd when it was repainted. On the inner front of it(part closest to the hatch glass) it did look like two peices. Does any one know what any of those letters or numbers mean?

does it really matter if your cloning a car anyway. it isnt a true ss so what does the spoiler matter

Well it dosn't really matter. I only paid $100 for it so even if its aftermarket it was still a good deal. I just wanna know what it's really worth.
