I'd have to take a few new pics, but here are a couple that show what I did to the bumper. you see at the bottom of the bumper steel, at either side, where the black pain spots are , those are slightly smaller than 1/4" holes in the bottom lip. The second pic shows the bumper with the foam attached and the support rods attached. I uses a short peice of 3/4" aluminum angle (1/8" thick) to drop down from the back side of the bumper. Then I used a threaded 1" spacer I got from Ace Hardware to bring the thread point forward, it was a different thread than the bolt of the support rod base, so I had to get a stainless machine screw that matched the thread of the spacer and did have to file the edges a bit to get it to fit into the "U" base for the rods. That's pretty much it... other than going through a lot of drill bits getting those holes drilled through the bumper steel.
here's a closeup of one of the installed supports upper attachment.
Oh, and the support rods that came with the kit were barely long enough to get to the attachment point even with the spacer bringing it forward, I have the roush bumper, so the splitter probably sits lower than the gt or gt/cs bumper, however your chin spoiler may push it out a bit further. measure and make sure it will work before you drill any holes anywhere. I did end up going with APR's longer support rods when I had to replace them because a shop lost one of them while working on it.
