They have them for 2008 and 2009. The installation is always the same - may be slightly differences..

Hmmm, now for the real world version:
A lift is nice but not too many DIYer's have one.
The only issue with doing this on jack stands is getting the car high enough to hook the hitch over the exhaust.
I thought they unbolted part of the exhaust? Not necassary. Use some wd40 or grease or somm to lube the rubber exhaust hanger. And just pop it off the hanger. There should be plenty of room. It's a very simple intall.

We tow a Harbour Freight trailer. The heaviest one they sell. Rated at 1750lb, has the 12" 5 lug wheels. Anyhow, we've towed our 2 motorcycles close to 15,000 miles behind the HHR. The car is rated to tow 1,000lbs and we are close to that. Car gets an average 27mpg when towing.

Body shop removed mine when I had the SS rear bumper put on,just hadn't had a chance to put it back on.Looks like it will fit with some trimming of the bumper. I don't remember it being to hard to install when I first put it on.Backed the car up on my ramps and used my floor jack to support it while I bolted up. Took about 45 mins. by myself Wink
