Headlight install help

Hey just got some gen 4 depo projectors for my 10 balt lt. i installed the driver side light fine but the passenger side will not line up correctly. (Meaning the plastic piece on the bottom of headlight that slides into black bracket right below hi beam) I can not slide into bracket and then screw down. If it is in the bracket the screws do not line up. ( falls short) if I do not slide into bracket then it sits to high and the hood hits it and it also sticks out a lil on the side. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You need to remove the front bumper at least part way to fully install the head lights. Have you done this?

Hey Riggs and black, no I did not remove bumper. The driver went in fine. The passenger is in just not flush like stock or driver side. Hell even the stocks were not flush but did not interfere with the hood. But they are on and look good! Never heard of removing bumper either!
