w123 front bumper adjustment??

Ok this is a strange one,
The front bumper on my 300d is kinda tilting down, almost like it is frowning when you look at it from the front.
My question is, is there anyway to adjust the angle at which the bumper sits? It was like this when i bought it, it almost looks like it may have been towed or lifted from the bumper and it caused it to tilt downward.
Its hard to see from the angle of this pic.
Any ideas??

Of course you could "shim" the lower mounting points with washers to correct the angle.
