Aiming Stock Headlights.

Is there a way to aim the stock lights? I just replaced both of my lights and they seem to be pointing straight down. I have an idea what to do but I'm not 100% so I figured I'd give it a shot.

there should be an adjustment screw facing straight up on the headlight somewhere

Park 25 feet behind an other car on a level plain, then make sure the cut off line is just above the trunk line while on low beam.

This usually works good for me.

stickx911, make sure you inserted the 2 guides under the headlamp housing in the 2 rails of the headlamp bracket.
