Default Droopy Bumper

Sorry if not posted in the right group. Ive got a 2000 blazer. The wife ran into a trailer hitch when we got it. After that I took the plastic off the bumper so just the chrome metal is left. My question is, how do I get the bumper to stay up? No matter how tight I get the bolts, it always seems to droop back down. Thanks for any help.

They seem to slip forward in the slots. Last time i tourqed the hell out of them. Didnt know if anyone else had this problem. Every time ive had it off, when i put it back i put the bolts clear in the back of the slot, and get it looking good, but it only lasts a couple weeks

try adding lock washers on both sides of the bolt to see if that helps it from being dragged forward
