Hey, i've noticed that my front bumber (C2R kit) is sagging a bit. There is quite a noticable gap on the right side, and a small one on the left. Any ideas on how to fix this? Or off to the panel beaters? What kind of work/$$ involved with this?

isn't there just a screw underneath which holds it up - have you had a look?

There is a bracket on the corner which is held in with 3 pop rivets, check to see if the holes for the pop rivets are not slotted, if they are good your bracket is probably bent or the guard could be bent, just release the plastic liner then undo the 13mm nut holding the bumper on to the guard and have a look.

The AuUbar normally fits up there with a stud and nut arrangement. I'd imagine the C2R bar fits the same way. If so, I'd be surprised if the nut's come loose, but it's possible. If so, re-align the bar and tighten the nut well.
Cheers, Bob
