Front Bumper Absorber by Replace®. The bumper absorber is located behind the decorative plastic bumper cover. As its name implies, the bumper absorber takes up the impact energy in a collision, to protect valuable body and mechanical components behind it. It is designed to be a sacrificial part and must be replaced if damaged in a collision. If your bumper absorber sustains damage, you can pay the high price for a replacement part at the dealer, or you can save money and get a Replace bumper absorber. Replace has quality replacement bumper absorbers that are identical to original equipment (OE) for much less than the OE price.

In the old days, bumpers were chrome plated pieces of steel supported by steel brackets. If anything was damaged, repair was simple and straightforward. However, those old bumpers were very rigid and often transferred collision impact damage into the vehicle frame. Today’s bumpers are much more complicated, with many more parts, and modern bumper systems are designed to crush and absorb impact energy, protecting body and mechanical components. A key part of the system is the bumper absorber. The bumper absorber may be made of polypropylene foam or formed thermoplastic and, depending on design, may be located in place of or in front of a reinforcement bar, behind the bumper cover.
In the past your options for replacing a damaged bumper absorber were finding a good used one, buying a cheap replacement, or paying big bucks for an OE bumper absorber. Because damage to these parts is so prevalent, searching for a useable piece from a scrap yard is a waste of time. And many cheap replacement bumper absorbers don’t fit properly and aren’t even made of the proper gauge material.
Today you can fix your car or truck properly and have money left in your pocket with a new quality replacement bumper absorber from Replace. Replace offers OE quality body parts at less than original equipment prices. You get the same quality part that you’d get at the dealer without the high dealer price. A Replace bumper absorber will look and fit just like a bumper absorber from the dealer, so your car or truck will look new again. Replace bumper absorbers are designed using the latest software so they exactly replicate the OE units, then they’re manufactured using the most modern tooling, so the end product looks and fits exactly as designed. A Replace bumper absorber is made to the same dimensions as OE with the same gauge material.
Body repair is expensive enough without paying more than necessary for quality parts. A Replace bumper absorber is the sensible alternative to the high dealer price markup. A Replace bumper absorber will get you back on the road in a car or truck that looks brand new, without breaking the bank. Replace is so confident in the quality of its bumper absorbers that they’re backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as the original purchaser owns the vehicle on which the part is installed. This includes perforation (metal rust-through) due to corrosion in normal use.
When selecting the Replace® component that is right for your model from the Product Options list, you may be offered a choice of Good, Better or Best. Good may be a part manufactured by a different company than the one that made the original part, but because it's based on the same design, it will look and function identically to the OE part. Better may be a part made by a brand name manufacturer and Best may be a part made by the same manufacturer that made the original part. Some parts labeled Best bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association (CAPA), an independent, non-profit organization that oversees a testing program to guarantee the quality of automotive parts. CAPA certified replacement parts meet the industry's toughest standards. But regardless of how the part is labeled, have confidence that whichever one you choose, it will appear and function to your satisfaction.
