Adjusting lights after HID install.

Hi
a couple of months back I installed a HID kit in my Tacoma. The truck also has a 3" toytec lift and in slightly nose high.

My lights blind the crap out of people. The beams are good (not just blowing out light everywhere) but they just aim A little too high.
The bulbs are seated correctly in the sockets.

I have turned the adjustment screws on the back of the light housings but they don't seem to do much.

My question is:
should I keep turning the adjuster screws and try to bring the beams down? Or am I wasting my time. Is it just that my stock (non projector) headlights can't aim the beams correctly?

Thanks
Donald

I got pulled over after getting my lift for my HIDs being "blinding". Just turn the screws on the sides of your headlights. They adjust very slow but they do adjust. I pulled up to a wall and aimed them that way
