adjusting headlights upward

hey guys my headlights ever since ive gotten my car have been horrible. they point way too low and i can barely see 20 feet ahead of me. im assuming the guy before me put the after-market headlights in, THEN he lowered the car, which causes half the headlights to head the ground

Re: adjusting headlights upward

Well considering there's already a thread I won't bother starting another one... here's my question

I have TSX retrofitted headlights. My cut off line is perfect and beautiful but how do you adjust the high beam light without messing with the low beam? My high beams are aimed really low.

I had the same issue and i found a trick. I dont know if this will work with a halogen but i did HID highs as well and when my highs are on you sure as he11 dont wanna be infront of me.. If you angle the bulb inside the headlight housing down it will send the light out of the headlight housing in a more upward direction. It worked with my hids because the bulbs dont fit perfectly. But i pulled up on the cord just a little bit which changed the angle and thus sent the light up. Its easily adjustable.
