Re: adjusting headlights

Mine were adjusted way too high from the factory yet there still worked very well (surprisingly). I could go 'coon hunting with them. My low beams were adjusted about right to be the highbeams. Now that I have them adjusted properly they are even better. Now with my Osram Ralleye bulbs these lights are even better.

Re: adjusting headlights

Any front end lifts (leveling) will really need to adjust.

Re: adjusting headlights

3" Toytec Lift - 12 clicks counter clockwise for each light on the little toothed wheel, perrrrrrrrrrrrrfect now. I am happy and no more flashing from oncoming drivers. This is what I love about this fourm, great info.

Re: adjusting headlights

I have pulled a car trailer with mine a couple of times and with a little tounge weight on the back the headlight level is awful. Thanks for the help. Jim

Re: adjusting headlights

I adjusted mine tonight with 16 clicks counterclockwise on both sides. Much nicer on the road now. Brights are now functional and don't just point to the sky. A Phillips #2 screwdriver with a 6" shaft is long enough.

Re: adjusting headlights

Well, my 5" shaft wouldn't reach!!! Normally it gets the job done. It's not all size you know, except in this case.

Damn - I went out for a couple beers tonight and on the way home I was behind a cop - sometimes timing is everything.

Re: adjusting headlights

Boy this thread is exactly what i needed at exactly the right time because not only did I do a 3" lift, I changed over to H4 PIAA's.

Tried 4 different screwdrivers and I guess I have to down and buy a *&^% long one. It makes NO sense for them to locate that gear so far down.

Again, thanks for this thread!

Ace Hardware has the one you need for $5.00.

Re: adjusting headlights

OK NoisyCow. Your avatars continue to murder me. Just kill me quickly and get it over with.
