Re: bumpers

I can help with the front bumper. If they are sagging at the trailing edges, it means they are not slotting into their clips on each side. The bumper comes off with 2 pairs of screws at the front and one on each side as well, and you will need to reinstall it and be sure that it slides into the clip bits properly. It will make sense when you see it.

Re: bumpers

If the front bumper isn't sagging, it's not a Falcon! :)

You will probably find the clips are actually broken and will require a cable tie or bit of wire. I did mine this way - looks good as new and you can't see the wire. Back bumpers are pretty much the same.
