Default best way to stabilize fog/driving lights?

Any ideas on the best way to prevent aftermarket fog/driving lights from sagging/drooping?

- Car: 06 wrx wagon.
- Lights: piaa quattro's (had em left over from my tacoma)
http://www.piaa.com/Lamps/Lamp-pages/p-4000.html
- How they're mounted: installed in the lower opening of the grill; mounted "pendant" style (bracket on top, light hanging).
- Problem: Appears the light is too "front-heavy", so they sag/droop/point toward the ground. No amount of tightening the mounting screws makes a difference.

What's a good way to "stabilize" lights?

Ideally, I'm looking for a cheap and easy fix. Not really interested in changing the lights right now, or getting a light bar or anything ilke that.


thanks!

You could try something like this:


These are model airplane pitch mounts-I think the pair were just under $10. They insert into tiny holes atop the grill just under the hood though they could be screwed on in any number of ways. These are Hella 500 fogs on a piece of aluminum angle. No shake or droop.
