    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!

    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.

    So I did the thing and it definitely helped a lot.

    I noticed my front bumper had started to sag recently, & had certainly not been off since I have owned it. I had it up on ramps today & found that there is a piece of black polystyrene that goes across the front behind the grill. It seems this polystyrene has become compressed or distorted recently, perhaps due to the unusually high temperatures we have been having recently in the U.K.
    Anyway, I used some folded up memory foam to pack out the gap behind the polystyrene, which pushes the bumper back up to where it should be, and by using foam, it also allows an amount of shock absorption. A very easy & cheap fix to a sagging front bumper.

    I wish one of the vendors would have made and sold these brackets/plate as a kit. I need to pull my bumper off asap to fix my grill and will probably make up something similar.

    Edit- sent sxth element an email. Figured it couldn't hurt to see if they were interested in making these. Will post if/when I get a reply. Would anybody else be interested in buying something like this if they were made?

    Found it. Cheers for that. Looks extremely low tech, but sometimes the simplest fix is the best. I'll wait and see if sxth wants to make something simlar to what Manofdust23 made, if not I'll try the Turbosocks method.
