Are you going to add the SS deflector later or you going to do without.

There are three bolts that hold the bumper on that release the tabs to take off the bumper. Other than that good how to vid. I guess you could just pop it off but you could risk damaging the bumper.

Showoff thread finally!!!! : )

Does anybody have a video on how to put a rear bumper ? I heard you need a heat gun to mold it a little ?

The rear bumper is just as easy as the front. Push pins along the trunk opening, two screws near the tail lamps, push pins in the wheel liners and a few along the bottom. If you're swapping to an SS rear, you'll need different wheel liners to do It properly.

Don't you have a floppy bumper along the bottom? The SS inner liners extend lower and reinforce the bumper from flexing. I've read where people didn't install them but they are cheap. I figured, may as well do it right.

I little plastic isn't going to reinforce them that much. I've never had a problem. If I ever do get them it will be from a wrecked cobalt ss because I wouldn't want to drop money on them haha.
