    Does anyone know how to fix that gap between the bottom of the grille and the top of the front bumper not being even on both sides? Anyone else have this problem? You can visibly tell the unevenness in the photo.

    The body likes to move around because it’s sitting on the rubber body mounts. The most noticeable spot to see this movement is at the gap you mentioned.

    Also, to note, the bumper is attached to the frame, so when the body rolls (during a turn for example) the frame doesn’t, as much, so you want that gap there otherwise it’ll make contact with each other and start rubbing the paint off.

    I'm just talking about how the gap on the left is way bigger than the other side. It seems to me that one side needs to be bolted in more? Its slanting to one side.

    I fixed mine when I upgraded my headlights. I had my grille and the pieces below the headlights off. It was several years ago so all I can tell you is there are some bolts that are exposed on each side when you get those parts off.

    You might be able to unbolt the bumper on the drivers side (it’s only 4 bolts if I remember right) and lower it a little, but then the gap on the outside under the headlight would be bigger. Not really a way to adjust the grille. Might have to live with it.
