Default Aiming Headlights

Hey I am wondering how do you AIM your headlights? I have some HIDs in my headlights and bought some headlights on ebay. But i never did get a chance to aim them because i didnt know how. And it is kind of hard to see the road sometimes. So i am wondering what do i have to adjust to aim them?

Adjust the alignment pins that hold the lamp in. I am pretty sure its similar on the new vehicles as well. May be a little different but you should be able to pull the lamp out and see that its pretty self explanatory. Newer trucks its a screw on top of the lamp for vertical adjustment only. I think you can do horizontal adjustments too but there should be no need for that.

Oh, I think i know what your talking about. There is no screw ontop of the lamp on my model. I have a "93 ranger i am going to take a look at it tomorrow though.
