    I recently installed a set of super springs on my Gen2 05 4x4 and found that it has raised the rear end approx, 1 1/2". No worries but now I have noticed that my headlights do not illuminate as far ahead on the road as they used to. I figure I need at least another 2 to 3 feet of forward illumination on the road ahead. Anybody know how I can go about adjusting the headlights?

    The bolt head you'll be turning is 8mm.I just did mine yesterday.Mark the top of the bolt head,count the turns,repeat on other side.Also,to give myself more room,I undid the top 2 screws on the washer container.Those are 10mm.:)

    OR, you can use a long phillips head sscrew driver, and insert it in the chanel to adjust them. :)

    That was my plan too.How ever,the adjuster screw head wasn't screw driver friendly.:(
