Question front bumper removal

Hey all, Anyone know where to find DIY bumper removal instructions for the 05 OBXT? Or know if the legacy GT bumper instructions Ive seen would be relevant to my upcoming tasks?
Also feedback from anyone on the Perrin Rear Sway? I saw on a thread somone stay away but did not say why and now can't find it to ask. GIA

Riverwhite, I deleted your post in the Parts/Performance forum.

This post will be sufficient. Most if not all of our users start browsing the board by using the "New Posts" link on the front page, so they will see all new posts since they've been gone. When two identical threads are posted in two seperate forums, board members will see two incidents of that thread. It's just redundant and adds to board clutter, so we always try to delete duplicate threads.

Good luck with this, I expect you should get some helpful replies relatively soon.

I don't have a specific answer for you, but I imagine it can't be much different, if at all, than the LGT job.

BTW are you talking about just the bumper skin, or the whole bumper assembly?

On my 98, part of the bumper is styrofoam, but a type so dense that you can't even dig a fingernail into it.

You might wanna do a search on legacygt.com. There's a lot of info on that board. I recall seeing bumper removal once--it seemed surprisingly easy (two screws and a whole bunch of clips?).

I wonder if you could download the removal instructions from one of the companies who sell offroad bumpers for our Subi's.

Who that might be, besides Mudrat in Oregon, I dont know.
