    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.

    your not going crazy dude, there definetly is a horizontal adjustment. i think it may loosen the housing a little but it works.
