It was a number of years ago that I changed one on my 56, I assume a 55 is the same. As I recall, just crawl under and behind the bumper and remove the attaching bolts. There are 3 as I remember, two at the lower lip and a larger central one. No need to remove the bumper bar.

no need to remove the bumper unless the 3 bolts are so rusted on that you cannot get enough leverage to break them loose.

Is there any difference between the 55 or 56 bullets? Thanks

According to parts book, yes. They each have the same number of bolts, but the placement on the bumper might be just enough different to require a slightly different opening or since there is a different upper bumper bar 55-6 there may be a slightly different contour.
