    There are some retrofit metal clips which were rolled out to fix sag from the rear arches. But I removed my rear bumper recently to swap out a parking sensor, and had also noticed sag on each side by the wheel arches. Both side brackets had snapped, so replaced them and it looks much better now...

    Yep. ‘Dem’s the ones. Pop the bumper off and check.
