Lol you got pics on how it looks like now? Normally you would tighten up the bolts off of the side of the fender it should bring it up a little.

Due to poor design the clips under the headlight tend to break with alarming regularity. Reinforcing these clips is the only real way.

I saw a fifth gen guy who used washers to somehow pull is bumper back up from sagging... if anyone else knows what I'm talking about feel free to elaborate.

That's how my buddy fixed his. I'll send him a message on facebook and see if he can explain exactly how he did it.
