Question Projector Headlight Alignment!

Anyone know of a place (in San Antonio)where i can take my truck to get my lights aligned. I've been trying to get them aligned this past week and it comes out looking weird.

Oh and they are Spyder projector headlights with 35w hid 6k on low beams
HEEEELP!!!!!

You are kinda stuck... Those lights have had odd reviews and no one that I have read REALLY LIKES THE OUTPUT...

I haven't tried them, nor will I...

You may be wasting money if you find a place to actually tr to adjust them.

Play in the driveway at night against the stable (garage) door, or against the house, or the wife's car, or against the apt building... against some sorta surface...

take pics of how the look for comparisons if you could plz
thx


I put the Laughter in Slaughter

KTM 450xc QUAD, Baldwin head, Ti valves, 8/06 cam, motoworks, goldspeed tires...

2010 CM RW, blacked out, Led's,Hid's bhlm, 315/60r18 Grabber's, XD wheels, Aero turbine exhaust, more than meets the eye.

I like weapons.
I dont capitalize, use spell check, or punctuate properly...
and you can call me Power.

U won't get a straight even cutoff with them unless you swap out the projectors

Can you post a link to check out the headlights? and output pictures so we can see if something can be done.
before you take a picture make sure that you are parked on a level area 20-30ft from a wall


something like this ...

This is what the lights look like. Maybe i need to twist the bulb some more so that they can adjust. I do have a vertical and horizontal adjustment knobs.

That is not a bulb adjustment bro, you need to open the headlights and adjust the projectors or replace them with real hid projectors.
