Headlight Adjustment?

My driver side low bean seem to be focused way lower than the passenger side.. Any way to correct this?

well the lights shouldnt need re adjusting. but if anything. id say just check to make sure your bulb is in right. sometimes they wiggle loose.

There is a allen screw at the top of the rear of the assembly that allows for vertical adjustments. Some Commanders have a small access panel that needs to be removed in order to access the bulb/adjustment screw.

So that was you!! Ha.

I had to lower mine after I got the lift installed otherwise I would've been doing the same. I know oncoming traffic does not like my PIAA aux lights, I get the high beams flashed too when I use them.

I was thinkthing hmmm. no not really. I was thinking that a warning should
be issued or stated when you lift your Commander, adjust your headlights.

Like Redbull, I blinded everyone for the first couple months after I lifeted
my commander.....AND....I just lifted the front at the time.

Agreed. There is a warning on the installation instructions for the 2" RC lift kit.

Mine are adjusted correctly, but for 4 years, I'm constantly being flashed. So, I just flash back! So, now I am very comfortable going through the airport.

I drive at night daily and the stock non HID bulbs just suck at the factory angle. They barely go out enough to go 50 let alone 60. I put in the stronger bulbs you can get at autozone and when I lifted the front end up 2" I left the headlights alone so they were raised a little more.
