    Hello everybody, can someone please tell me how to adjust my headlights on my 05 Tacoma, I just put a 3" leveling kit and I need to lower the beam.

    Thanks, Joe

    there is a large (maybe 12mm) bolt head on the rear of the light housing towards the bottom. If you look at the inner lens while turning the bolt you will be able to see if it is going up or down. I would suggest trying to do 1/4 turns and counting them so you know where factory setting was, just as a place keeper.

    Yeah I think I used a socket set to do mine. Make sure you face a wall with the lights on so you can make sure they're both at the same height...
