I'm pretty sure, in fact positive, my low drivers light is lower than my passenger light, and my brights are level.

you're brights are supposed to be pretty much level, and the best way to setup lows (if possible) is as mentioned, to point the drivers side down. We can really only point the housing so i dunno. All aiming things i've seen show putting the lows at the same heigth.

I've been using the turn screws to adjust them(one for right to left and the other for up and down). So it sounds like the drivers side should be lower(logically this makes sense) but that we're not 100% sure. Maybe they should be level??? I think I'm going to adjust the lows so the drivers side is at least level if not lower and whatever happens with the hi'* happens.

heres just a guess.....the lights should be aimed the same for the low beams and high beams but the drivers side low beam has a little different reflector to keep the light out of oncoming traffic??....

that was a stab in the dark

pssst, your drivers' side low beam should be slightly low and to the inside. it'* so you don't blind the oncoming...

Could we do this. Could we put the low beam bulbs in the high beam spots & vice versa. Im sure some are going to make fun of this idea but its alright.
