    Hopefully someone can answer this quick. I took off my bumper to sand and repaint it. When I did I noticed a larger gap between the trunk door and bumper on the driver side than the passenger. After measuring the right side has a 1" gap and the driver side has a 1 1/2" gap. It basically slants upward from left to right.

    Any ideas?

    you should be able to adjust the bumper height with the bolts on the bumper mounts. They have slots in them so you can move the bumper up and down on each side by about 2 inches or so.
