go to the wreckers and walk around till you find a set of non stuffed clips (good luck, all the wreckers near me have no good ones left) its pretty easy to fix up yourself

Yeah they are pretty fooked those bumpers. Can happen to EF/EL ones too, but not as badly. EF must be better as I did back into a concrete wall at Garden City at about 4/5km/h, lol. No sag, just a wee bit of a scratch.

Front and Rear are the same. they clip into the Guard / Rear Quarter and then the bar has slides that go into them. should make sense when you see them

Just so i know. Ur talking about those black clips that go in to the sides and the bar slides in? If so if ur in SA i know lonsdale auto wreckers have heaps. I used to work there and they know what common problems are so they get alot of that s**t.

Hence towards me leaving we NEVER pulled out any EF/EL ABS moduals cause they never break.
