I put the RC leveling kit strut spacers in the front of my 2017 all terrain. Ever since, I'm getting flashed pretty regularly.  I have the stock led lights.  I know these lights are bright to begin with, but should ! have my lights angled down a little? I have never had to do that, but these things are by far the brightest lights I've owned.

 

anyone else have to do this? If so, did you diy or pay the dealer?

 

Thanks for any info.

You should definitely adjust them. You are blinding oncoming traffic. It's a very simple process.

cool, thanks for the link. 

 

I made the adjustment yesterday. Super easy. 6mm hex probably 2 turns did the trick.

These LED lights are defiantly bright... I have yet to install my leveling kit but already have seen people cover up their mirrors when I pull up behind them at stop lights... I actually find it amusing but I'm sure they are hating me lol  :lol:

It is easy to adjust your lights, I had the same problem but turned them down. I have no issues now.

 what do you want me to do?

Not asking for blood here or your first born dude. Simply insure your headlights are properly aligned so you're not blinding other drivers.

They are properly aligned. My truck is bone stock except HID's instead of the shit halogens that came with the 2015's

I can't imagine anyone "flipping out" if that were in fact the case, when you happen to piss off the wrong person don't say I didn't warn you at least I tried.

Inside a proper projector lens or just in the regular halogen headlight? That could explain a lot

I've noticed the ghetto HID bulb in a halogen housing to be prevelent with kids and the apparent non-english litterate, very annoying.


Now days the Z-71 package should include a basket so you can walk back and pick up all the parts that fell off while you're waiting on the flatbed.

Nah it's cause he was in a tiny old hyundai hatch with the huge rear window and I was off center of him so my ligjt was right in his driver side mirror. My cut off line is the exact same spot as stock

Ok cool
I had some dude slow down, get behind me and turn on his brights. So I slowed from 70-50 just by letting my foot off the gas. If he gets in front of me I'll flash my brights to show him I don't have them on. But he slowed down too and wouldn't get in front lol. Some people are just dicks
