PostSubject: adjusting front bumper   Wed Jul 24, 2013 1:22 pm

Is there a way to adjust the front bumper on my '95 FWB? It's a little low on the drivers side and it bugs me every time I look at it. I took a quick look under there and it didn't look like an easy fix. I remember on my '70s cars it was slotted for adjustment but I didn't see that on here. I'd love to fix it before Sat 'cause I'm using it to tow my '50 Century to a boat show. Can't have crooked bumpers n shtuff.

4 nuts on the back of each side of the bumper where it attaches to the crash pistons. plastic shims are used. Make sure none fall out when you loosen the nuts, it's a PAIN IN THE BUTT to do. I battled mine for 6 months.

Yup, pain in the butt. I know on the caprice, each side of the bumper support mount(where it mounts to the impact piston flange) there's 4 slots with 4 nuts that can be adjusted and tightened. Theres a plastic piece on the support that has the threads for the nuts, that can be adjusted up and down whereas the slots/nuts are left and right only. If any of that makes sense.

I think I understand. I'm sure it will make sense when I take a closer look at it.

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like having it done for Sat may be a longshot...

Fixed it! cheers That was way easier than I thought. Took about 10 minutes including jacking it up. Now I can back into a parking spot and not be embarassed! Embarassed
