Yes it is interchangeable and depending on what parts you will switch out from the LX bumper cover all you should need is #1 and #18

I switched from an LX bumper to an SX bumper, so PM me if you have any questions. If I remember correctly, the only other thing you need is the SX front lip, everything else can be transferred over from your LX bumper. Although you'll have to drill out the mounting brackets (don't know the actual name) if you want to reuse them since they're connected with rivets. I would go ahead and buy new ones if I were you since it will save you a lot of headache.

Any luck finding a place? The link you provided, those guys are expensive. Have you tried rockauto.com or kiapartsnow.com or autopartswarehouse.com yet?
