There should be black plastic squares with screws sticking out on the corners of the headlights.When installing them make sure the screws are positioned in the up position. Use a 10mm nut driver or a phillips screwdriver to raise or lower the beams. I just maxed mine as high as I could get on low beams. Seems aftermarket lights won't raise as high as stock headlights but are satisfactory. I just used the white garage door at night to see the beams. There are several video's on YouTube on adjusting them.

yea my aftermarkets I had to darn near adjust them nearly all the way up and the bottom 2 all the way out. Kind of a pain and alot of just playing around but will get acceptable. make sure they arent all crosseyed. get the height adjusted at a garage door or wall then slowly back away, should just grow in size and not start drifting one way.
