Headlamp adjustment

Just fitted LED headlamps on my 110, 2" lift, and 235/85 R16s. I have looked for instructions on how to adjust the lamps but am falling short. I found one post that stated to park the vehicle 4 meters from a wall and center mass of the beam should be 5 cm below the height of the headlamp. Not sure if that is supposed to be high beam or low beam. Any advice on how you guys set yours?

Low beam.

To be honest I've never had to adjust them as they come out of the carrier and go back I the same place. If you didn't adjust the carrier mount screws you should be fine.

I figured the same but the LED lamps have a slightly different fit. Just worried about blinding people. These things are bright!

It doesn't discuss LEDs but it's a great right up that may get you close.

They shouldn't fit any differently at all ... they go into the carrier exactly the same as halogen types and then the carrier mounts on the alignment screws.

what brand do you have?
