In the old days, bumpers were chrome plated pieces of steel supported by steel brackets. If anything was damaged, repair was simple and straightforward. However, those old bumpers were very rigid and often transferred collision impact damage into the vehicle frame. Today?s bumpers are much more complicated, with many more parts, and modern bumper systems are designed to crush and absorb impact energy, protecting body and mechanical components. A key part of the system is the bumper absorber. The bumper absorber may be made of polypropylene foam or formed thermoplastic and, depending on design, may be located in place of or in front of a reinforcement bar, behind the bumper cover. In the past your options for replacing a damaged bumper absorber were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE bumper absorber. Because damage to these parts is so prevalent, searching for a useable piece from a scrap yard is a waste of time. And many cheap replacement bumper absorbers don't fit properly and aren't even made of the proper gauge material.
