Curious thing about this part. A lot of people call it a "spoiler", but it isn't. I don't think GM ever intended it to have any "spoiler" effect, as such. Thus GM called a valance panel. I think it was intended to conceal the front suspension, for cosmetic reasons.

Just an FYI and not intended to start a flame war, as that has already been the case previously.

Air dam to directly affect under car airflow to reduce high speed lift of nose of car. Guess flame is on.

Definitely an "Air-Dam.

Mark, have you ever driven a LM with-out it on the free-way, then do it again with it?
BIG difference!

"How to keep your Corvair Alive", lists Two GM part nos. for Front Spoilers
for LM's.

Z-28 Camaro Spoiler PN/3938689 fits with only the need to drill Four holes
and attach with sheet metal screws.

And,
Z-28 Camaro Spoiler PN/3943249 fits and looks good but has to be cut in the middle to allow smooth fit without warping.

It improved highway MPG by reducing air turbulence under the car.

Wikipedia and other dictionaries describe spoiler as:

The goal of many spoilers used in passenger vehicles is to reduce drag and increase fuel efficiency.[3] Passenger vehicles can be equipped with front and rear spoilers. Front spoilers, found beneath the bumper, are mainly used to decrease the amount of air going underneath the vehicle to reduce the drag coefficient and lift.
