Headlights (Aiming)

My low beam headlights are too high. I'm getting flashed by oncoming vehicles quite a bit. Can anyone tell me if I can lower these without going to the dealer? Back in the day it was just a little philips screwdriver twist and all was happy again. Thanks

It is easier on the new Tundra head lights, I'm pointing to the adjuster on the back of the drivers side head light. A philips slides into the funnel then you make your adjustment. The red circle and arrow indicate the side to side adjustment.

Just a tip, don't go too low cause then the high beams end up being USELESS.
There doesn't seem to be a way to adjust them separately, and when I turn that bottom screw to adjust, they both move up or down the same amount.

I found if you go too low, the highs do not improve your vision whatsoever when used.
Also when aiming against a wall or something, the highbeams appear to be LOWER than the lowbeams but with a more spread out beam.

Oh and the other adjuster that is supposed to be the side to side, doesn't seem to do ANYTHING whatsoever....

Weird.

I have an 08 CrewMax on a ProComp 6in. lift. After two months of being lifted and numerous of high beam flashes at me, I went to the 4x4 shop that installed my lift so they could adjust my headlights. I was told that they were to busy to help me out today and to bring it back tomorrow at free of charge. I couldn't wait one more day, so I went to the Toyota dealer that I bought my truck from. At my surprise, I wasn't charged a cent do to the fact that the majority of the Tundras that are being sold have this problem from the get-go. I thought that I was going to get charged (obvious) since I didn't purchase the truck lifted.
So to you all, driving around being flashed (lifted or not), I suggest to go to the dealer that you purchased your truck and get your lights re-adjusted. Just like I was, you might just be in luck.
