TRS Tips: How to Adjust Headlights for the Perfect Aim!
No matter how easy modern headlight replacement kits make installation, there are a few critical skills every do-it-yourselfer need to know — such as how to aim headlights. Once your retrofit is complete, you'll almost always find that the beam pattern needs to be adjusted. Whether you’re wondering what’s the proper headlight adjustment height for your truck or what’s the optimal car headlight beam pattern, a little knowledge can go a long way. Watch the video for tips on how to adjust projector headlights, and read on as we go over a few important points of reference to make sure your newly retrofitted headlights are aimed just right! Getting Started There are a few simple tools you’ll typically require to complete a DIY headlight alignment. Before we start our tutorial on how to adjust projector headlights, make sure you have some masking tape, a tape measure and a screwdriver or socket wrench handy. Aiming Height Adjusting headlight height to the optimal level is the first step to improving visibility, beam quality and on-road safety. Parked 25 feet away from a wall, the upper cutoff line of the headlight beam should be just underneath the side view mirrors of an average passenger vehicle. This will ensure maximum distance lighting without too high, thus risk glaring oncoming traffic. Setting Side to Side The second most critical action in learning how to adjust projector headlights is making sure both sides are properly aimed and balanced. Squarely park 25 feet away from a wall with a clean visible surface. Measure the distance between the two projectors on the front of your vehicle, and ensure that the distance between the steps in the beam pattern on the wall matches that. The center point between the beam's steps should match the center point between the projectors. This will ensure maximum width, without compromising any intensity in the center. It will also give you more distance on your side of the road while cutting the light on the side of oncoming traffic (due to the rising shape of the beam). Ask the Experts Learning how to align headlights yourself is another important, yet easy-to-master skill for the DIY retrofitter.

2011 Ford F 150 headlight adjustment (vertical tilt)
I replaced my stock headlights with HID's and had to adjust the vertical tilt of the headlights. The technique that I use is just a way to quickly adjust the headlights, not the by-the-book technique that some use. Also, some people like for the passenger side light to be slightly higher than the driver side, but I like them at the same level.
