TRS Tips: How to Adjust Headlights for the Perfect Aim!
Once your retrofit is complete, you'll almost always find that the beam pattern needs to be adjusted. We go over a few important points of reference to make sure your newly retrofitted headlights are aimed just right! Height: Park 25 feet away from an average passenger vehicle. The upper cutoff line should be just underneath it's side view mirrors. This will ensure maximum distance lighting without too high, thus risk glaring oncoming traffic. Side to Side: 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)

This process will be different on older vehicles but most modern vehicles have this set up. The most important thing to remember however is that you need to make sure you're on a level surface when performing this procedure otherwise you will not be successful in aiming your headlights correctly. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.
