3" Lift & Headlight Issue

Did a 3" lift and it appears that my FJ is lower in the back than front in which case trucker's don't like my lights pointing up at an angle. Has anyone else had this problem? Best fix?

Re: 3" Lift & Headlight Issue

First question would be, what kind of lift did you get? Did you get coilovers up front? Did you only lift the front and not the back?

Coils all around. Not adjustable. Thanks for suggestions.

Re: 3" Lift & Headlight Issue

pretty simple answer. adjust your headlights down as anyone with a lift should do.. there's a thread in how-to section if you don't know how

Are you trying to fix the lift or the headlights? The lift will settle, more in the front than in the rear. The headlights can be adjusted by turning a small wheel located on the back of the headlight housing. Hope this helps.
