WJ Headlight Aiming, HOW?

I just installed a set of Phillips HIDS in my 03 GC and I think it would benefit if I adjusted the way the beam hits the ground. Is their a way to adjust the beam? The light does not spread out evenly on the road...it is brighter in some spots then others and I would like to raise it a bit...any help woudl be greatly appreciated.

yes, but if you have the original housing for your HIDS you will need to remove the headlights... there is a swiveling metal bar on the inner half of the headlight thats only reachable when the headlight is removed...and bc you can't see the adjustment until you put the headlight back in make sure you rotate the bar the same amount of revolutions for each headlight otherwise the aim will be impossible to get back ontrack

Actually you don't have to remove the stock headlights at all to adjust them. If you look down on of the holes above the headlight next to the bolt that holds them in, there is a torx head you should be able to see. That is how you adjust them.

Did you replace the reflectors also? If not, the problem with your beam pattern is due to the fact that you've got HID's in a housing designed for halogen bulbs. No amount of re-aiming the lights will solve the problem. You need a reflector designed for the HID light output. There was a thread on here a few months ago with a picture drawn to illustrate this point.
