Why won't 95 Impr. rear bumper slide out? 6 17mm bolts are out.

This isn't really that big a deal because the bumper cover is now pretty floppy and I can get it pushed away from where I'm working on the rust, but it would still be easier to just have the whole bumper "thing" gone and out of the way.

I believe to remove the whole thing there are 4 very large bolts same as front bumper but they are hidden
Actually, there are three big bolts with 17mm heads on each side that seem to pretty obviously be the main structural attachment bolts for the bumper, and those bolts are already out. Now the bumper does "move around" relative to the car's frame, which wouldn't be the case before the removal of those six big bolts, but I still can't get the bumper to actually slide out.

Now I see that the structural steel bumper is bent noticeably, so I guess that's another junkyard part for me to track down.

sorry about the miss information my 93 impreza didn't seem to have the same design or maybe a previous owner just it up so that the bolts were the only mount points, may it R.ust I.nto P.ieces it served me well.
