a super-easy way.
GET A LONG, SKINNY, PHILIPS SCREWDRIVER...THERE IS A SMALL CAM DOWN A LONG TUNNEL THAT IS NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THE BACK OF THE HEADLIGHTS...YOU'LL NEED A FLASHLIGHT...STICK THE SCREWDRIVER DOWN THE HOLE, THEN TUNNEL, THEN TURN THE CAM TO ADJUST LIGHTS...IT'S SO EASY, IT'S ALMOST STUPID.
EMAIL ME IF YOU CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT.

I just added some 8500k bulbs, I already know I need to adjust them. I stood out in front of the vehicle, with lights on, to look at them and I was blinded. This was during the day..
Glad I was able to find this thread.

A while back i got my leveling kit but my front end must've been high cuz i got brighted A LOT, so i took it back to the shop and they adjusted it so the ride was level again. :simmadown: But i dont know what they were thinking before because before i got it adjusted my brights were up in the tops of trees :lol:

STOP!!! Toyota would not require you to remove the grill assembly to adjust the elevation of your headlights. Maybe Lexxus but not TOYO. This is an SUV after all. I Installed My Rough Country Lift Last Week. There is a headlight adjustment channel on the top of the cover. It is a hole and you can actually see the bolt. All You Need Is A Long Flat Head Screwdriver. The bolt sits on a cam just like the one on a hose clamp. Turn it clockwise To Go Down, Counterclockwise To Go Up. Email Me If You Need Some Picks. This Is Only For The Elevation Alignment. I Am Afraid That If Yo Need To Adjust The Aim, you are screwed and would have to follow White Rim's direction. Believe Me, You Do Not Need To Take Off the Grill. You can actually see the channel on White Rim's diagram (top of "A" bolt). They would not put the channel unless you could use the channel. Remember, your baby was built in Japan not Detroit.......
Worked perfectly except for mine it was counterclockwise to go down.... Thx for sharing!!!
