    How do you adjust them. I have notice that my lights only Shine about 10 foot in front of the car it may be less. Has anybody have this problem after lowering your car. If so how did you fix it

    You don't necessarily need that tool. Some vicegrips should do the trick.

    I adjusted mine a couple months back without the tool LateModel uses.

    I guess I do things backwards, but the opposite end of those adjusters have a phillips head on them. Might have to loosen the corners to get a screwdriver in there, but it'll do the trick.

    that's wierd. Mine are hex drive.
    It might just be worth going to the store and buy an offset phillips. the longer the handle it the better.

    you ou better not put Hid's in a halogen housing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    with a proper 9007 bulb it should be decent light if aimed correctly
