Default 3 inch BL front bumper Question

Hey guys,
I am having trouble getting the front bumper to look good. It sags on the sides. I think I am using the front bumper brackets wrong. Does anyone have any pictures on how to make the front bumper brackets work? And how they go on?

Thanks

what id do is tighten the bolts so it wont fall off but you can move the bumper around. in every direction. and just do the side to side first, then the up down.
