Default Hanging front bumper part 2

I've got the bumper off. I took the 4 bolts off and the bumper is laying on the ground. I don't see any brackets at all. The place where the 4 bolts were is all welded on.. Can anyone help me out here? Why exactly was my bumper hanging down. It looks like one of the welded in mounts is bent.

Any help?

Where it mounts is the "bracket" it is welded you may need to straighten the one that is bent

Any tools around the house that could do that..? A good hammer or something. It's kind of a weird angle. So, lets say its the mount that is bent. After that is corrected, should the bumper hang level or sit balanced how it is supposed to.

A hammer can probably bend it back, and if that is the only thing wrong the bumper should hang straight again.
