With everything assembled according to included instructions, we'll begin our test fit by placing the front cross bar onto the front of our roof. Now we'll need to measure nine inches from the leading edge of the glass to the leading edge of our Q Tower. We'll need to make this measurement on both the passenger and driver's side of the vehicle. Making this measurement on both sides will ensure the front crossbar is perpendicular to the roof of our Impala. Once we have the bar in position, we'll tighten down the silver thumb screw on the inside of the tower and clamp down the black plastic covers.

Chevrolet Impala Questions

  • You can mount the fenders directly to the trailer frame through the fender skirt on the back of the fender. I would recommend using large washers if you drill through the fender skirt and attach the fender directly to the trailer frame. If mounting directly to the trailer frame is not possible on your trailer, you will need to use brackets to attach the fenders. We have the Galvanized Steel, L-Shaped, Bolt-On Brackets, item # PF775-BKT-2, that could be used to mount these...

  • The Thule AeroBlade system is an excellent roof rack system for your 2009 Chevrolet Impala. The load bars will be level when installed properly on the roof of your vehicle. The Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit, part # THKIT1531, will include foot pads that are contoured to the roof of your Chevrolet Impala. These foot pads are vehicle specific.

  • It looks like all of the trailer hitches for a 2011 Chevy Impala are Class II trailer hitches. We have one carrier that could possibly work; the Trailer Hitch Mounted Scooter / Wheel Chair Carrier, # RHWC1114. The carrier weighs about 90 pounds and has a 230 pound capacity. If loaded to capacity, that would be 320 pounds which is within the capabilities of the hitch. You would need to consult the owners manual for the towing capacities of the car. The Rage carrier that...

  • For your 2013 Chevrolet Impala, the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C12252, is a good fit. This requires no drilling for installation and has a 1-1/4 by 1-1/4 inch hitch receiver opening. This is a Class ll hitch. I did some research and found that the maximum towing capacity for your impala is 1000 lbs. Tongue weight is approximately 10 percent of the towing capacity so you can carry about 100 lbs, including the weight of the carrier you place in your hitch. You will want to either...

  • For your 2014 Chevy Impala LT I recommend Curt trailer hitch # C121153 which comes with the correct ball mount. This hitch is rated for a maximum of 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pound gross trailer weight. Check the Impala owner's manual for its capacity and go by the lower of the two. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. Please note the 1-7/8 inch ball is rated for 2,000 pounds gross trailer weight. For a trailer wiring harness you...

  • Yes, you are correct your 2014 Chevrolet Impala LT will need a Class II 1-1/4 trailer hitch such as the Draw-Tite Class II Hitch Receiver # 36538. I recommend the Draw-Tite over the Curt, because Curt requires the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050 to be used with any non-trailer loads. This is within the guidelines of their warranty. I included an installation video on a 2015 Impala which will be similar to yours. In order to carry your 2 inch bike rack with this...

  • We have exactly what you will need. But before that I wanted to thank you for looking up the towing capacity of your vehicle beforehand as that is a very important step many people ignore. The Curt Class II hitch part # C121115 is confirmed to fit your 2015 Chevy Impala LTZ and would work well for your needs. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. If the trailer you plan to tow calls for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball you would want the ball mount part # C45571...

  • The MaxxTow Magnetic Tow Lights you mentioned # MT70097 could be modified by doing some cutting and splicing to work as you describe. You would attach the connector of the wiring harness at the front of the vehicle and run the wiring under the vehicle. Following the frame member or an existing wiring harness works best. Run the wires to the rear of the vehicle, being sure to avoid any suspension and steering components that might move or anything hot like the exhaust system....

  • The Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C12115 is confirmed as a fit for your Impala. This is a Class ll hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. Per Curt, all non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. For that reason I recommend going with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 36538. This is also a Class ll hitch and...

  • A hitch adapter can allow a 2-inch accessory item like your Thule rack to be used in a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch like Draw-Tite # 36538. But the downside to using any adapter is that it will cause you to lose 50-percent of your hitch's capacity. This is due to the change in the geometry of the system when an adapter is added. An adapter like Maxx Tow # MT70355 will fit your 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch and provide a 2-inch receiver opening as well as a 4-1/2-inch rise for better...

  • The best fix for a suction cup mount coming loose is to clean the two mating surfaces. First, clean the subject area of the windshield with an alcohol wipe. Unlike common window cleaning solutions, which may leave an invisible residue that interferes with adhesion, alcohol will effectively remove all dirt and oils without leaving anything behind on the glass. It is also a good idea to clean the concave surface of the suction cup itself. We do not recommend the alcohol for...

  • The Coil SumoSpring helper springs you mentioned, part # CSS-1195R will indeed help stiffen your rear suspension when it's under load and help prevent sag. When the rear of the vehicle is not under load, it will not affect the suspension at all so you won't have a harsh ride. These are the correct helper springs for the rear suspension, I've confirmed this with SuperSprings for you.

  • Sounds like you are in need of a ball mount that offers more rise than the part # C45017 that you are using on your 2015 Chevy Impala. In order to get the correct ball mount you are going to need to take two measurements.

The difference between these two measurements is the rise/drop you need. I attached a help...

  • You will be able to flat tow your 2007 Chevy Impala LTZ using a tow bar. You will first need to install base plate kit # 523133-1 (only works on models with 3.5 liter motor). You will then need a tow bar compatible with EZ style base plates. I recommend the RoadMaster Tracker Tow Bar, # RM-020. (To be able to remove the EZ base plate front extensions, you will need to use Roadmaster Tow Bar Quick Disconnect Kit, # RM-201.) Next, you will need safety chains, or cables, and...

  • Flat towing a vehicle requires several components at minimum: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, wiring kit, and a supplementary braking system. The linked article covers each of these items in detail. For example, your Impala can use Roadmaster Base Plate Kit # 3103-1. Certain vehicles, including your 2005 Impala front-wheel-drive, also require a transmission lubrication pump be installed to prevent damage to the transmission.
