Just a warning to all you who like to snug up to the curb on nose in parking... there is a very flimsy and fragile air dam in the front of my '04 SSR and I did not even realize it, but at some time, I got too close to the curb and knocked it off. Then I do know that I got way too close to the curb... could tell by the hard metalic clunk... but there is a high impact plastic bracket that runs from left to right under the radiator and the dealer says it holds the radiator in place... or at least is supposed to provide support for it. That little ole clunk broke the bracket and it is $400 to replace it. So either back in, or make sure you don't smack any curbs... I didn't think I had hit anything that hard, but it only took that one smack. You would think that something as important as a bracket that holds the radiator in place should be metal. I'm sure it would not add much to either the cost or the weight of the beast. Anyway, after waiting 2 days to get the part shipped in, got it fixed. I'm a much more gentle parker from now on!!
