Good day.

 

I have a question regarding the front bumpers on the 4th Gen. I own a 94 Base Firebird that recently got a huge crack in the bumper, rendering it more or less useless. Now for the longest time I've pondered on getting a Trans Am bumper to attach to it, so that begs the question.

 

Will a 94 Trans Am bumper fit a 94 Base Firebird nose?

Yes, direct replacement.  I believe you also have to replace the rigid foam crash pad/support behind the flexible cover, since that holds the fog lights and may be a slightly different shape.

 

There are multiple “how to” videos on YouTube.

 

You can also reference the 1994 factory service manual, page 10-4-4.  If you need a manual, free download, thanks to GaryDoug:
