I know next to nothing about the 2000+ Bonnevilles but why are you wanting to change your spoiler? Aren't they all the same? Although, I could understand if your spoiler was in bad shape.

There are no direct fit replacements other than a GXP spoiler (not any higher). What you are asking would be completely custom.

Please don't put a ricer wing on it.

As this is Bonneville related (and not a mechanical problem), moving to General Chat.

You could raise it an inch or so, using some type of spacer.

Could also do a GXP spoiler.

You'd need to make a plastic spacer to close the gap, and figure out a way to lengthen the bolts.

The Bonneville GXP has a much different spoiler than the SE/SLE/SSEi. See below.

GXP spoilers are similar, but not the same, they are 3 pieces...regular spoilers are 1 piece.

Personally, I like the look of the "molded in" style on these cars.

I've always wondered if a Grand Am spoiler would fit a Bonne. A friend of mine has had one he's been willing to give me to try this out but i haven't gotten it to put it on board yet. Guess i'm just being a sissy for nothing - could always mount and dismount if it looked too ricey. The distance between anchor posts is similar, but not exact.

Grand Am's are WAY narrower than Bonnevilles... will look silly.

If I'm not mistaken, someone (possibly on the old club) did raise their spoiler with spacers. I wish I could remember who it was or if it was even a bonneville, but I do remember that it looked pretty bad.
