Hid headlamp help

So I got my jeep back from the body shop and one of the headlights is aiming lower than the other. Does anyone know how to adjust the housing?

Thanks in advance

I have the auto headlights and my drivers side has been lower since I bought the jeep. Is there a way to adjust it with the auto level?

Driver's side should be lower, it's aimed to not blind oncoming traffic. Passenger's side can be aimed a little higher to give you more visibility on the side of the road since there's no oncoming traffic on that side.

From what I know as I also have the factory HID lighting systems. The lights move up or down as to not blind on coming drivers. And the only way I can describe the pattern of my drivers side light to pass side is a backwards Z. They should be level right across since they do adjust themselves.

Does anyone know how to adjust them? In my case they were fine before the accident. Now the drivers side is aiming at the ground.... I can't see anything at night I have to raise it or not drive at night...

Ok so after some research I found out how to align the hid lights. There's I a white plastic screw on top of the fixture that can be turned to aim up or down.

Now all I have to figure out is the color temp of the stock hid's. Dies anyone know or have advice on selecting a color? I don't want to go all blue or white... The one the bodyshop put in is all white and looks like crap.
