I am in the process of replacing my bent and droopy front bumper with another (better, but not perfect). On the passenger side the bumper iron doesn't reach the bumper. Short by about 3/4". I'm assuming the iron was bent when the bumper was damaged, but just wanted to check before attempting to force it. The iron itself doesn't look like it's going to bend that easily. The irons are different each side. Driver side is longer and has captive nut welded to it. Passenger side has no welded nut. Has somebody been improvising perhaps?
