It is slightly adjustable. I'm not sure how, but try doing a search on here and I'm sure you'll find what you need.

As said, only slightly. Left and right only. A mishaped bumper will never line up. But OE bumpers don't seem to line up on '04/'08s.

Any luck on this?
I have the same problem with a 2010 F-150:
Not really seeing any change of shape, but driver's side seems pushed in about 3/16 inch: just enough to notice.

Haven't had the truck long, and it was dark last night when it happened...bumped into something low that I didn't see..
(Did I say that I haven't had it long? ;-)

~25 years ago, I had a 10+ year old K-car, (pre-airbag) and did similar mistake , with similar results, except that car had a full wrap soft vinyl bumper cover, so it masked much of the 1 1/2 inch misalignment...However, on closer inspection, I saw that the designer had specified an actual shock-absorber for the mount: it was SUPPOSED spring in & out, but after 12 years and +100 K miles on the road, rust built up on the 'moving' parts that had never moved that far before, and it stuck in a compressed position...It still had pressure, though - a few moderate whacks, and it popped right back out...

SO...I was sort of hoping there might be a similar DIY solution for this one, like loosening a few bolts, and shifting it a bit... It's less than 1/4 inch.

Anyone have experience, or advice on this ?

TIA!
