Gave my rear a clean 😬

Quite extreme for a clean but I like your style! How difficult was it to prize the bumper away from the clips? Mine suffers from the "sagging" where the bumper is clipped in at the sides, I think some of them have partially snapped too. Ford tell me that with the bumper off and some careful tweaking before securing back into place can make the gaps better. Would like to give it a go if it's not too difficult. Must be easier than the front bumper surely!

Wasn't specifically to clean but I thought while it was off I may as well strip it down and clean everything. To remove the bumper it's pretty easy, just unscrew the 3 nuts from inside the boot holding the lights on and remove the clips and bolts from the wheel arch and underneath the bumper. Then just pop the side clips out and lift the whole bumper up and away.

BMR rear suspension mounts installed, the rear strut brace is still on route.

Are these the new version from BMR where you drill 2 holes through the bodywork and there's a backplate inside the boot? Im looking at putting these on with some Bilstein B6 shocks to try and cure the weird floaty bumpy back end. How's it worked out for you? any noticeable change?

Cars still on axle stands, the BMR rear strut brace literally just turned up.

please post your first impressions when you get it all bolted back up. Really keen to know if this is a mod that I want to explore. Im trying to be a bit targeted these days and only address areas of the car that really need sorting. Like the bouncy back end, and then the gear change.... no more power related mods for a bit!

It may be a bit difficult to get the specific feel because since I last drove my car in August I've installed:

Mishimoto front strut brace - Replaced Ford Performance strut brace for weight saving
Mishimoto Oil Separator RH - Replaced GT350 oil catch can due to space issues
Heatshield Products 140014 manifold heat shielding
Reische 170’F thermostat
BMR BSF760H lightened front bash bar
BMR BSR760H lightened rear bash bar
BMR CB763H front chassis brace
BMR STB762H rear strut brace
BMR SM760H rear shock mounts
QA1 JJ-21207 SFI carbon fiber drive shaft
Custom front mounted oil cooler

Booked H-pipe install at GT101 based on recommendations on this forum. Talked to David and he was really reassuring with the active exhaust not getting affected.. will update when it’s completed.
I’m wondering if it’ll be louder than pre facelift models.
:fingerscrossed:

Looks like Tasca Parts have done it again, luckily for me this time they sent me a "free gift".

So if your ordered 2009-2014 Ford F150 exterior door handle is missing, it's available for free collection in England 😂

As Ford supplied them, the active exhaust is already louder than a pre facelift :like:
