Can Ford adjust aftermarket lights???

I just got some new clear headlights but they are not aimed at all. It's too late to call. My lights have the 3 adjusting screws. I know there are some people that work at Ford dealerships on here.


C.E BTW Zach will probably be very happy that I finally did this.

about 10 feet i believe, youll want the lights to line up evenly on the wall, and i believe almost straight ahead, maybe just a lil under.

You could also look in the owners manual. There is a formula to adjust them properly. like, 4 feet off the ground at 8 feet, or something like that.

I had nokya bulbs in my truck and they were the same way. They look awsome when you look at the front of the truck. BUT when driving in bad weather, They EXTREMELY suck. I ended up buying a set of PIAA bulbs and I love them. I also bought a set of CATZ bulbs and they work awsome too. I keep them aside in case one of the piaa's blow I can replace them with another good set.

They are in the stock headlights. I didn't buy aftermarkets yet. I want to get a set, but I can't really decide on who to buy from on ebay. Because they all have horrible feedback. Although they are the cheapest.

I can get a pic of the piaa's in the stock housings if you'd like????
