    vertically Between the bracket and rad support.. Now even with these brackets you will still get the sag in the middle of the grill. The corners will be tight though..

    Can you please tell me what you screwed into for support. I get that the bumper is resting and secured to this... But what about the other side? Thanks you in advance for my quest of no bumper sag!

    My fabrication skills suck (mostly because I don't have the right tools) but I am sharing anyway to try and give anyone else an idea of how to fix the sag.

    Mine started sagging after the very first time I took the bumper off and it bothered me for more than two years before I made these brackets last month. Now the bumper sits where it is supposed too and looks a lot better.

    This is the bottom plate installed. Just used some basic nuts and bolts to attach it to the bumper. The rear is attached with the three bolts that held the plastic weather guard in place. This plate replaces that plastic piece nicely. Sprayed everything down with Undercoat to help protect it (got a little too much in some areas).

    Upper brackets replacing the factory ones. Holes are off center on the brackets but line up when I put the bumper on. Sprayed Undercoat on these too. Used the factory plastic screw-pins to hold in place (for now).

    Brackets and plate before install.

    EDIT: Here are some pictures of the bumper installed. You can see how tight it fights up against the headlights now. Also, I forgot to mention that with that bottom plate the bumper doesn't move at all. It feels solid.

    I knew when i came up with them damn things i should of just made them and sold them.. But it wasnt a 100% fix so i would feel bad taking peoples money.. Plus makes for a cool like DIY project
    So I did the thing and it definitely helped a lot.
