2003 rear cobra bumper is slanted?

Just bought a 03 cobra and I've been looking at many lately at car meets and such, I've come to notice my back bumper is somewhat slanted from the left side to the right just underneath the trunk, it's a very big difference. I've noticed almost every terminator cobra does this, is there a way to easily fix this? Click image for larger version

There are about 4 bolts underneath the trunk. You will see them after you pull the carpet away. I drilled new holes in order to adjust mine.

Seems kinda sketchy to do that on a car like this, was it easy?

It is hard to do because the bolts are connected to a piece of metal that is about a " wide and longer than all the bolts. I took the bumper off to make the situation easier.

Might just bring it somewhere. Not experienced enough to be messing with bumpers and stuff on a car like this. Thanks for the tips though
