Saggy bumper fixes without quick patches?

Iíve searched the forum but only found one non-Quick Latch post and it seemed difficult to do, Iím not sure how he did it even after seeing the one pic he posted.

I did find this YouTube video though


Does anyone know of other methods?

I just saw this post on IG, shout to prom_brz. Forgive the screenshots from my phone. I couldn’t save the pics, maybe he turned off that feature.

Yes. It works until you hit a bump. I've also tried the OEM pieces to fix it and those fell out after a week.

It is what it is at this point

My quick latches are holding up perfectly after a few years. They also make taking the bumper on and off easier; which I have done twice. IMO, they look good, work great, and are fairly easy to install.

Or you could just try getting this from the dealership along with some new headlight brackets and see if it fixes it.

These work *almost* perfectly.

When my front bumper was taken off to be fixed and re-painted after an accident a few months ago, I asked the body shop to use those bracket reinforcement things (for lack of a better term) and I haven't had any noticeable sag since. The only difference is they used 3 for each side and the SB says you really only need one per side.

This is great to hear that is actually works to a certain extent. If my bumper starts sagging i will definitely give this a try.

My sag inst even really bad, but i just took my bumper off again for the 5th time so as a precaution i ordered a pair of the 57722CA030 PLATE BMPR SD and SU003-01499
Side Bracket LEFT, SU003-01498 Side Bracket RIGHT, may even hit it with some plastic JB weld if i think its needed. Hopefully last time i need to take bumper off at least for a while.
