Question front bumper adjustment

Any insight or advice before i start this? I wouldn't think its going to be difficult but from my quick look. It looks like this bumper is mounted different than i thought it was going to be.

Basically the bottom is sagging. 90% of the OBS rigs i looked at sagged. Hopefully an ez fix. My OCD Is getting to me about it. Mainly wondering if there is an adjustment or will i need to shim it?

if you shim it the bottom of the bumper will come closer to the tire right? I just bought new tires for my OBS and they are 285, as of right now my bumper is less then a 1/2 inch from the tire when i am turned to the left. my bumper looks a lot like yours did in the picture. If i shim it will it for sure rub then?

Wish list- regulated return, injectors,tubo this list could go on and on.

If the blue truck in your sig is the bumper you are referring to, it is BENT or the brackets are bent. Take it off and straighten it

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
