headlight adjustment?

I have a lifted 95 ZJ and the headlights dont hit the road at all because of the lift.

can anyone tell me how to adjust them?

Thanks in advance.

Park on level ground 25 feet away from a convenient wall. Make a reference line about 3 feet off the ground on the wall using tape. Open your hood and looke at the crossmember just above and to the rear of your headlights (but in front of the radiator). You'll notice a couple holes behind the headlight with a torx head screw in each one. With your headlights on low beam, note where the center of the beam strikes the wall relative to the marker tape (probably high). If I remember correctly, turning the outboard torx screw adjusts your headlight up and down, the inboard screw adjusts in and out. Adjust your headlights down until the center of your beam is at the tape. Also make sure the beam is pointing straight ahead on each one. You can do the same for your driving lights, but adjust them for about 1 to 1.5 feet up the wall.
