    the left side beam is supposed to be a little lower and cutoff. So you dont blind oncoming traffic.

    Thats just how good headlight housings are designed.

    if your battery isnt sending enough juice to your HID's, this will cause one or both of your lights to cut out. Is your light cutting out while you are driving, or just when you start your truck?

    That's correct. That's how they are designed.

    The reflection off the top of the inter housing will reflect the light downward - not blinding people. If the bottom of the housing would get lit up, it would reflect the light up at the sky/oncoming traffic.
