My rear bumper is sagging a little and is easily moved up and down. Been to two different dealers and both said that it's normal. I checked out the other 300c's on the lot and some were sagging but not as much as mine and all were rather loose. I did see some that were completely flush. Anyone have a fix for this?

My rear-end sags, but that's a different story. :wink1:

Actually, I've never even noticed if my car's rear-end was sagging, as everything appears to be in-line. I will have to agree with you though, that the rear fascia does appear to me mounted somewhat loose, but so have all of the others that I've checked at my Chrysler dealer....must be 'normal'. :dunno:

When you have your tail lights out you might want to think about raising the vinyl bumper, about half of the 300s coming off the assembly line have a wedge shaped margin between the top of the bumper and the bottom of the fender. I am a real car freak and couldn't stand to see that wedge. Once the lights are out you need to frabricate a piece of steel about 3/4" X 3" to go under the vinyl flap, you need to duplicate that with one on the top with a runner going up, you then use a pillow and jack to raise the bumper so thst the margin is perfect then a couple of sheet metal screws to the inside of the tail lights. {these will all be covered by the tailight} Reinstall the tail light and stand back and enjoy. I realize I am a perfectionist about my cars but that poor fit really bothered me, it was the first thing that my eye was attracted to. Took me about 2 hours total to frabricate and install. If any of you are as nuts as I am and want to do this to your car I could take pictures if you need. "hemidale"
there it is.. let me bring the link back up.. :wink1:

Ahhhhh! I have a sagging butt! Kind of reminds me of a plumber butt showing :spank:

Just took these pics tonight. The 5th pic is a new SRT8 bumper.
There is clearly a problem with our cars.
I say this should be fixed under warranty.

Good news. There is a TSB that was just issued, if the gap is greater than 5/64in, or 2mm.
I just measured my gap at the widest point, at the tip of the rear tail lens, and it is currently 4/16in, or 16/64in.
The TSB seems to be measuring further forward, where my gap is about 8/64. So the gap showing in the pics I previously posted above should be wide enough to be fixed under warranty.
