I assume you're referring to the kit in this thread? If so, I ended up not buying it and bought these car parts mentioned instead. I think it solved more of the actual issue than the symptoms.

I called my local dealership and ordered them. It was around $25 for each headlight bracket plus $5.50 for the fender bracket. Free shipping cause delivered at dealership.

Anyone figure out how to install this new Kansai kit? I tried replacing the headlight and fender brackets, and it helped for a bit, but soon after started sagging again. What a shit design...

I never could get rid of the sag until I went the "threaded rod" and new bumper route...see this post. Worked like a charm and is "brand new" again.

Geez, what a pain. Well I'll probably be selling the car in a few months anyway, so I guess I'll just live with the sag.

Do you have any pictures from the front on the sag?

Sooo, I had JapanParts reach out to HKS Kansai service and got installation instructions for the V2 kit.










You're welcome.

So the little metal thing is a great idea for an easy fix, but after doing this I realized that is not the main issue. The brackets were bad to begin with, so they've made new ones. And while it's not 100% fixed (more like 99), this is more of a permanent fix than the original tool in this thread.
So the only thing you've done was change the headlight and side marker bracket? How is it holding up? I've had the saggy bumper titty for 2+ years and it's finally reached a point where I finally considered doing something about it. If yours is still good, even after a couple of removals, I think I may consider your method over everything.

If your bumper clips are intact, they are great. If they are broken, this fix helps, but does not solve the issue.

I had to keep taking bumper on and off a few other times and eventually I got lazy and broke the bumper clips, and now it doesn't hold as well anymore.

Damn. Yeah, my bumper clips are broken so I guess it's probably better to do it that method, maybe combine it with your method if I want a better hold.

LOL same, I would like to think i can do it but it's a good amount of work. Old one is just glue and go. New one is like make 2 surgical incisions here and screw here etc etc.
