Default Headlight questions.......................

I have a couple questions having to do with headlights i got rid of the stock bulbs out of my ranger about a year ago and put the sylvinia ultra's in and noticed a difference right away. Well i also had my mechanic re adjust my headlights as they were pointing straight down for some odd inflicted reason anyways when i am out and about at night pepole keep flashing me as if my brights are on but they can't be as my fog lights are also on. Any ideas what the problem could be? Thanks guys.

Maybe just hoping i am not blinding people but i live in Florida and fog lights on as well probably am with all these old people.

There not too bright the brights are perfect because before with the stock lights the brights were chit and down here these old people drive around with there brights on and will blind you just to be able to see so i wanted to be able to blind em right back lol.

I am guessing you have a 2001-2011 if so sounds like he aimed them to high.

Here is how you can save some money and do it yourself.

Think about it - if people are flashing their brights at you AFTER your headlights were adjusted, then they are aimed too high.

If you're being flashed, they're just aimed wrong. See STL's instructions. No need for a mechanic.
