I installed the Hunter Bull Bar on my 2008 element. I installed to spec including proper bolt torque.

the entire unit is quite flimsy and there is lots of movement.

I wasn't expecting something that could withstand an impact, but I didn't expect it to wobble under the pressure of 1 finger!!

I am going to try and fab up additional braces to stabilize this better.

Yeah, that's Flimsy. : - (

It definitely needs at least one more support bracket.

What are those 2 small brackets on top of the lower cross bar for?

I was considering attaching it to the bumper plastics, but I’m concerned that movement would eventually wear out the bolt mounting points in the plastic.

I’m going to explore additional subframe mounts.

I just found this video of someone who added stabilizers. Posting for future reference.
