If any of you have a "droopy R front bumper, I have developed two different repairs for this.<br>Each repair (whichever you choose to do) takes about 5 minutes and is much simpler to do than the iron bar.<br>Requirements:<br>Access to a lift<br>A buddy to help position it.<br>IM or email me if needed I'm not going to post the "how to" here!

Here is a quick fix. About 5 minutes once the car is on ramps. Drill pilot holes with drill bit and screw in some of those nylon hollow wall anchors. (The big screw shaped ones). Done.

Re: (2005VolvoVR)

This is what I did: <A HREF="http://i42.tinypic.com/dwudk4.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://i42.tinypic.com/dwudk4.jpg</A><p>Aluminum angle bar from Lowes and 12 brass nuts and bolts, about $20 total. Now it's almost totally flat on the bottom part.

Re: (n23)

When I was doing some other things in which I had to pull my bumper off I drilled 2 holes and used zip-ties. So far its held up through 2 winters in New England.
