Headlight Bracket

Alright guys i have been trying to fix this myself for awhile now im asking you guys. I got in a accident about a year ago insurance covered it all that and its back to new but the passenger side headlight does not line up now like the hood is off or the quarter panel or something so i tried messing around with it today and i lined some stuff up a little better but the headlight still does not like line up with the hood so i though maybe the bracket was wrong one cause on my drivers side its a different bracket then what they put on it so idk i was thinking maybe you guys could post up a pic of what your brackets look like or what they are supposed to look like i have a 2008 so idk if that changes the brackets i think it does but im hoping someone can help me out here thanks guys/girls

Did you remove the headlight completely and put it back in, maybe the tabs on the bottom of the housing are not seated correctly and pushing the light up.

Your frame probably got hit and they fixed it back as best as they could.
