    Seeing if anyone else has this issue and if so, what they have done, if anything. I have the TSB aal and added a 2" toytec spacer in the front to level out my rig. When I am behind regular sedan vehicles, I am pissing everyone off because my lights are so bright in their mirrors. I know some are going to say tough crap, but wondering if there is anything to help. Don't know if a dimmer bulb is the answer. Anyway, thanks in advance.

    The leaf springs and lift didn't make your bulbs brighter, they threw your lamp alignment off.

    Most service centers will adjust for you, or it can be easily done yourself.

    Got that Fortech, that's why I mentioned the truck was lifted a bit. Thanks for the input.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Do you know if they can be lowered a bit?

    They should be adjustable, look on the top of light assembly.
