My 91's rear bumper is also starting to do that in the middle. Havent had a chance to look into it yet. But short of taking the bumper cover off and maybe adding a support bracket in the middle. As for the fenders, I had my entire front of the car removed from the doors forward during the resto. It took hours of bending and adjusting/shimming to get the hood and door lines right.

My 91 was godawful, it was my first car purchase ever at 18 yrs old and if I knew then what I know now I never would have bought it... well that's life lol. Only thing I can tell you is put it on a lift and take measurements and see if the frame is twisted/bent. A lot of these cars are beaten on at some point in their lives and without the proper bracing/chassis stiffening its not a good thing for them...

Right now I'm on the mobile app, but I can only add a profile picture. I'll add them when I get off work. I have 80 pics from the resto.

Yeah that's what I figured. I just put the car back together a few weeks ago from a 3 month resto. So that sag can wait should have addressed it before, but didnt notice it until after I painted it.

The foxes were saggy just a couple of years after they came out. My 92 was sagging in 95.

Off topic, but Your car is so nice jsampson. These foxes are harder to find in nice shape, and you brought one back to life. Awesome!

I did mine back in the day, they are stupid easy to do, just make sure to loosen up the water pump bolts BEFORE you remove the belt so it doesn't spin. I wouldn't worry about the alternator pulley. I felt it picked up a little low end but it might have been a placebo effect too...
