Drill the bumper shocks. You can do this either on the car, or off the car.
Either way, wear eye protection!! Contents under pressure!!
Then push your bumper in. You might need to put a screw in the shock in order to keep it compressed, you might not. Good luck!

Lots of people like to do this by putting the car up against a wall and slowly adding throttle ... just put a piece of cloth or something between the wall and bumper to prevent it from getting scratched.

oh and btw, make sure u wont get arrested for pushing into someones wall.
