Help! Headlight angle got messed up!

well i just recently got into an accident with my truck

check link for full story http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ml#post1032711

and when i got the truck back, i think the body shop adjusted the angle on my headlights and they were pointing way up, and i have HIDs on my truck and i was blinding everybody that drove by, so i adjusted them and went kinda excessive and faced them too far down..does anybody know how to get them back to stock settings? is there even a way to i guess measure what the angle of stock settings and able to get it back to that setting?

Use the search to find a .pdf that I posted on how to align the headlights. You should use a flat wall a level surface to get them in a ball park range and then just drive down empty road at night with a Philips screw driver handy and adjust them little by little until you get them right. No more then about 3 or 4 turns once you are fine tuning them.

Screwdriver? Mine adjust with a socket, not a screwdriver. Interesting.
