My luk engages almost right off the floor. Seems too dang close. My master is leaking a little on the floor mat so this may be part of the cause. Bad master.

From my experience a bad master makes it release all over the place. Its not consistent and u have to pump it up if u hold it down for a while.

I did the same on my '95. Seems brighter.

Any suggestions on how to align the beams? I know how to do it, just not sure about the method for setting the best height...left...right angle, etc. to best get the beam out there on the street...without blinding on-comers.

Good question. Don't know was gonna see if anyone flicks their brights at me lol. I think there is something to this effect in the repair manual..

From svc man:

ALIGNMENT SCREEN PREPARATION
(1) Position vehicle on a level surface perpendicu- lar to a flat wall 7.62 meters (25 ft) away from front of headlamp lens (Fig. 1).
(2) If necessary, tape a line on the floor 7.62 meters (25 ft) away from and parallel to the wall.
(3) Measure from the floor up 1.27 meters (5 ft) and tape a line on the wall at the centerline of the vehicle. Sight along the centerline of the vehicle (from rear of vehicle forward) to verify accuracy of the line placement.
(4) Rock vehicle side-to-side three times to allow suspension to stabilize.
(5) Jounce front suspension three times by pushing downward on front bumper and releasing.
(6) Measure the distance from the center of head- lamp lens to the floor. Transfer measurement to the alignment screen (with tape). Use this line for up/ down adjustment reference.
(7) Measure distance from the centerline of the ve- hicle to the center of each headlamp being aligned. Transfer measurements to screen (with tape) to each side of vehicle centerline. Use these lines for left/ right adjustment reference.
ADJUSTMENT
(1) Remove screws and both headlamp bezels.
(2) Clean front of the headlamps.
(3) Place headlamps on LOW beam.
(4) Cover front of the headlamp that is not being
adjusted.
(5) Turn vertical adjustment screw (Fig. 2) until
the headlamp beam pattern on screen/wall is similar to the pattern depicted in Figure 1.
When using a headlamp aiming screen:
• Adjust the headlamps so that the beam horizontal position is at 0.
• Adjust the beam vertical position is 25 mm (1 in) downward from the lamp horizontal centerline.
(6) Rotate the horizontal adjustment screw until the headlamp beam pattern on the aiming screen/ wall similar to the pattern in Figure 1.
(7) Cover front of the headlamp that has been ad- justed and adjust the other headlamp beam as in- structed above.
(8) Install headlamp bezels. Tighten the screws se- curely.

Find a level lane with ditches, lines, or some way you can determine whats your lane and whats not that you can park in for a couple minutes at night... center them on your lane, level them so the road is lit up as far out as possible but lower than where the light is starting to lessen on the road as you move upward. Its simple and takes 5 minutes.

Methinks it was caused by a burnout.
