Default Bumper Swap

I was looking at pics of a '03 Bonneville SE''* front bumper and the '03'* SSE/SSEi'* rear bumper. I want to know if these, or any other years, can be bolted directly on to my '01 SE or would I need to make some mechanical/sheet metal modifications? Any constructive advise would be appreciated.

You need the cover, impact absorber, and the wheel well liners (left and right extensions). Its very easy as you can tell by my SE which has SSEi covers on it

Way cool! I've been afraid to do it before I found some sound advice. Thanks for the info.

swapped to the GXP one in the back to smooth the lines out. and swapped the front one for a new one that was at the time easier to redo as far as fit and finish
