    i thought i was gonna hve to do this after lifting my front end 2.5 inches. it looks like it shines right into oncoming windsheilds but so far i have only been flashed once and i have had it lifted for a good 2 or 3 months now. id say thats normal since i got flashed before the lift just cause these lights are bright. although i do notice whenever i pull up behind someone at night i see them reach up and flick their mirror dimmer switch....

    I blind people every night pretty much. I dont mind it too much, but I know they do.:D I get flashed all the time. So for common courtesy I flash them back. haha. I also get people moving their rear view, pretty much everybody I get behind. I cant help that the lights are so bright, and I dont think adjusting is going to help much either.

    I think that with some cars no matter how bright the headlights are they are just going to get blinded. Sometimes when I drive my fiance's Protege (rarely) it seems like I am constantly getting blinded by other trucks with stock lights. Mainly by the Ford's and Dodge's fog lights. I found that its just better not to stare at the light....:eek: I think that sometimes its a natural tendency for people to stare at bright things.
