18MM bolt I think

Unless your brackets are bent you should just be able to loosen and straighten

Yup just bolts loosen em up a bit so they are still snug and use a dead blow. That's how I straightened mine at least. 18 mm sounds right, my rear bumpers mashed from extracting me from a hole so I'll be putting a new one on soon.

Didn't notice that no lol I've used ratchet straps to help pull bent bumpers straight. You might be able to straighten it some with unbolting it and moving it around.
