I have had a lot of learning experience with the 03,04,and 05 GMs as of late. I have found that the header and grille are unique to the 03,04, and 05 GM. The hoods are all the same on the CV and GM from 1999 to 2011. Watch the hinges they are easy to bend when replacing the hood. You can use a fender from a 03,04, or 05 from a Grand Marquis or Crown Victoria also. So in a nutshell, yes those parts from the 03 CV will work on your 04 GM. I don't know if you need new headlights and/or cornering lights also, but the GM ones (03-05) are specific to the GM. This is where the difference is in GMs and CVs, the headlight cluster setup is different between the 2 cars. The grille is also a different size and shape between the GM and CV, so is the hole in the header too. Thus making this part (03-05 GM header) more rare and unique in these CV/GM type cars, like I stated earlier in this post. Not saying one cannot be bought or found, but they are just not as plentiful as others. Hope this helps you out.
