I would say the Mini Quick Latches are a DIY fix for it, but i'm guessing you want a completely stock solution that does not require drilling.

I think my issue is more sever than any of you that have posted. I'll have to get some pics to show. It's ridiculous. I'm actually considering going the quick mini latches route.

Yeah.... there is no reason we should have to drill holes in our bumper because Subaru and Toyota don't have their shit together.

True. But Toyota would probably never fix my issue since I have a trd front lip and they'd probably say it's because of that.

has anyone tried 3m tape? Or I had a Saab Viggen that used to scrape on everything and I used what was basically zip ties behind it to hold the bumper up, it looked totally stock from the front until they broke every few months.

I had this problem when the bumper wasn't aligned properly in the headlight bracket. It has to sit in the slot of the headlight bracket not on top of it.

And #12 in that diagram will also help since the tab on that piece wears down over time and won't allow the bumper to clip on tight

Not really helpful, but my INGS +1 bumper fits insanely snug. Literally there is no gap at all.

With my stock bumper, I have this problem. I've just gotten used to it, and push it in everytime I see it, lol

Have any of you considered the solution on page 6 by mister.bond? He says it is fixed and hidden for him.

I wonder if his mod would work with my full blown turbo kit. Maybe we try that? Idk.

Sorry to revive this thread but yea... Here's a pic of mine.

I'm planning to thicken the tabs with some jb weld type of material. It's a pretty hard epoxy and it sticks pretty well to plastic. So basically doing the speaker wire method but instead of speaker wire, I'm using an epoxy to build up the tabs thus hopefully clinging on to the bumper better.

i'd like to see how you do this.
Took my sag to the Subaru dealer near me and said because there are scrapes on the bottom of the bumper that warranty/tsb is not applicable. Bummer, roads around here are pretty bad, scrape the bumper just on bad humps and crossing roads time to time.

Edit: For clarification, i am completely stock, stock height.
