Bumper is sagging?

Well I've meaning to get to fixing this but I've been a lazy bum. Well yeah, the front bumper tends to hang a bit, but its not loose, its just hanging. Does anyone here with body repair know how to fix this? Or do you know a DIY that can show you how to fix this? By the way here are photos to show the extent of it.

And in this photo I can actually stick the tip of my finger in the gap. :[

Re: Bumper is sagging?

there is 2 different write ups on how to fix that...

1st way.pull your bumper, you will see 2 clips on each fender side. adjust those 2 clips up in the front.

2nd way. pull bumper. there are 2 10-12mm bolts on the "rebar"/bumper support on each side. loosen bolts and adjust bumper support up.

both ways you have to kinda play with. if you move the clips/bumper support up too much your gap will be off...

i dont want to post write ups with out permission, but ill send you them in a pm...

Re: Bumper is sagging?

its really pretty easy. dont use the washers, the way i showed you works better than what the guy in the write up did. i did mine more than a year ago, and it sits in the same spot as when i finished...

We post others work and DIY's all the time, bro. Just give the credit to the original creator to be polite. No need to get on him.

Re: Bumper is sagging?

pretty sure posting a link to something isnt taking credit for the work. all it does is point it out to the guy that doesnt know how to search

if you look at any DIY threads, mods will ask people not to post other peoples DIY , unless they have express permission. if it was written specifically for a web page, it could cause a problem.


and LMAO at getting on the guy. you think i was getting on him???? thats nothing. i didnt even come off rude. i could have came off ALOT harsher, trust.

we PM links all the time, yes. but posting them is another story....




he got the info he needed, so lets get this....

Damn girls, hope i didnt hurt your sensitive feelings. if you think i was being rude, please. grow some balls. i have been warned not to post other peoples work without their express consent. if you do want to help someone with someone elses link, i was told to do so in a pm.

the op knows what to do.


if you have a problem with me, lets take it to pms. great post arsenio! way to show some maturity!...and neg rep returned right atcha tuff guy.
