    Hey guys, Im new to the H.I.D retrofit thing and have a question about adjusting them after installing...it seems as if the hot spots of the light are going towards the center of the truck (if ya know what im sayin)...is this how they should be? or do they need to be adjusted apart some? I did not move either of my headlights and they were perfectly adjusted beforehand with the halogen. Thanks for any help or advice in advance.

    You do not perform a retrofit. All you have is a plug and play HID kit. You will most likely have to adjust them since your HID kit's capsules' arc is not in the same exact spot as your stock halogen bulb. Just adjust with the adjustment screws/knobs until you can see fine.
