Headlight Adjustment

Just leveled out my 2010 , raised it 2.5" in front and now I am wondering if I need to adjust head lights down. Has anyone done this ? How to do it ? thanks

There's two grey "bolt looking" screws on the backside of your headlight. The "washers" on them have teeth, this is for a big Phillips head screwdriver. Put the screwdriver behind it and twist. The top one is up and down. Bottom toward your fender is left to right. It's easy to do

screwdriver i believe, mark the original position with a piece of masking tape on ur flat surface for reference.............long phillips driver from the top

and always end in a clockwise motion to lock in the setting..........or so the FSM says
