Re: How can I make my saggy bumper happy again? Acceleration rattle? (sbozly)

You are going to have to pull the bumper (or at least the skin) to see what broke. To remove the bumper, there are four (two on each side) 17mm bolts through the front cross member and two (one on each side) 17 mm bolts through the sides of the frame rail.
If it is the plastic guide on the fender, those are cheap and easy to replace (two push plugs). If it is the mount on the inside of the bumper skin, it is slightly more complicated. Either find another skin or try to MacGyver a replacement bracket.
As for your rattle, it sounds like your heat shield.
