    Front bumper sag

    After taking my front bumper off and putting it back on a trillion times, It's decided to start sagging. I've taken it off and put it on more carefully making sure all the clips were in the right places, yet it still sags about half an inch roughly. Any ideas on how I should go about fixing it?

    Sounds like you've changed the support system somehow.

    No way is should sag, regardless of the times it has been

    off and put back on.

    Something is missing.

    i almost messed mine up by putting in the screw near the fender towards the side. somehow i managed to undue the damage but im afraid the next time i uninstall the bumper im doomed. lol i was sweating like crazy lol also, does anyone know the screw size for the bumper inside the engine bay? like the 4 screws that go up top... one somehow stripped and i need to get it replaced. it has the number 4 written and its a black one.

    Mine sags but thats cause the clips under my light are broken. Do you have a stock crash bar and grille? If so, check the tabs from the grille that are supposed to rest on the crash bar to make sure they arent worn/bent/broken.
