Set headlights and foglights

Does anyone know how to set where the headlights and foglights should be at? I know my headlights are screwed up from the body lift and i need to lower them. I know how to adjust them just where to?

The simplest way is in front of a wall about 6-10ft away so you can see where the beam is pointing. Even them out. As for how far down to point them, its trial an error. Your low beams should not be blinding oncoming traffic so adjust them just below the point where they are annoying.

Thanks, ya I figured just point it at like the garage but I just did not know how far down they should be pointing. What I might do is take my dads f150 and point it at the garage to see where his. Then just adjust mine to where his were pointing.

Then go to my moms and do the same with her exploder for the fogs.

Stock fog lights have very little adjustment. You won't get much out of them now what you do since they're only designed to be low.

Your lift makes a little more of pain since the lights are higher up and therefore require a sharper angle down. So just play with it until you get it right.

Ok, sounds good, Ya, I have been getting alot of people flashing there lights at me lately. I think it also because of the fogs because they are almost all the way up right now.

It's a trial deal for sure. There's the "park 25' back from a wall" method, but I've yet to get it down pat. If you have another vehicle you can use to match it, that will get you close.

Good luck.
