Question Any mod to aim headlight?

I know this is probably redundent but here goes... I have an 01 and the driverside headlight beam actually crosses over to the pass. side beam. I do know that there is only a vertical adjustment so, WTF do I have a crappy headlight assy. wondering if there is anyway to correct this problem or try a new assy.

You may also want to check to make sure the bulb is seated in the housing correctly.

My 2002 is the exact same way. The passenger side beam shines straight forward and the driver side beam angles to meet it at the furthest point. I was told it is to keep the light from crossing over into the lane with oncoming traffic?
