I rear-end someone doing like 10 kph, A while back and now the slanted bumper is annoying me. It is slanted about 1-2" downward at the rear (sides) of the bumper creating a gap between the rocker panel and bumper near the wheels.

I have tried pusing it up and stuff. The clips holding it on, on the sides are just slid in ones. I think the bumper's shock absorbers may be very slightly pushed it creating the slant? Or is it something else? I tried to look but man is it cramped under the bumper near the shocks absorbers.

well i have a suggestion for you, take the entire bumper off, and inspect the bumper it self. See we dont have the steel bumpers like the old cars...and we have bumper covers, usually made of plastic/fiberglass. And our bumper is just two things stickin out. That holds the cover on. Our covers should withstand a shock of about 15 mph...if your lucky.

When someone slams into the back of my car I just take the insurance money and go to the junkyard and pick up another bumper for $43.

It's real easy to install, you can do it yourself. Might take you a few trips to the junkyard to find the right color. If you need a front bumper you can't be picky about the color. Just find one in good condition and use 1000 grit sandpaper (wet) to remove the original paint then drop off the bumper at a body shop to be painted then pick up and install yourself.
