you need to put what year your truck is in your signature. That might help when asking questions.

Not so sure about the b-trucks, but on the ranger, there are two little steel plates that slide down onto the adjuster screw bases and fasten them against the header panel. I forgot to order those when I redid my front end and over bumps, my lights jiggle just a bit, maybe 5* or so.

yeah try the adjusting screws, turn them in (clockwise) and that should get rid of the lazy eye!

If you dont get those slide locks just perfect on the adjustment pins the lamps will wobble and if you stand back and look you can see they are not seated right.

This might help http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exter...01-2010-a.html The last pic STL points out the pins we are talking about. That is assuming the Mazda is the same.
