i have heard of people drilling small holes in the shocks and draining the fluid, then pushing their bumpers in. . . i however drive my big bumper everyday and after a slow rear-ender where the bumper got compressed but the body was undamaged and all i had to do was pull the bumper back out. . . i'll leave my big bumpers the way they are until i have a different D.D. and can drive my tii just for fun purposes

Same thing happened to a friend with a CS. He has a beautiful '74 with all kinds of upgrades and was hit in the rear fairly hard sitting at a light. He got out thinking that his car was toast, but the 5mph bumper worked awesome and no body damage occurred. He is converting to small bumpers with some hesitation. 8-)

The archives there had an article on shortening the existing US style bumpers by purging the fluid in the shocks.

Maybe see if an hour or two of time gives you a look you can live with.
