Bright Head Lights

Seeing if anyone else has this issue and if so, what they have done, if anything. I have the TSB aal and added a 2" toytec spacer in the front to level out my rig. When I am behind regular sedan vehicles, I am pissing everyone off because my lights are so bright in their mirrors. I know some are going to say tough crap, but wondering if there is anything to help. Don't know if a dimmer bulb is the answer. Anyway, thanks in advance.

Yeah, All I can say is to aim them a tad lower.

The leaf springs and lift didn't make your bulbs brighter, they threw your lamp alignment off.

Most service centers will adjust for you, or it can be easily done yourself.

Got that Fortech, that's why I mentioned the truck was lifted a bit. Thanks for the input.

Thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if they can be lowered a bit?

aiming

A quick use of the SEARCH yields this

Just turn them in the "down" direction maybe 2-3 turns, then go for a drive. Repeat as necessary. Helps to do this at night!! Just keep track of all the adjustments so you don't get lost. Lots of posts on this
