If you look at the lower inner corner of each light near the grille... there is a little curved cutout spot on the bottom edge of the light. There is a T(I dont remember the size star bit) that you can turn CW or CCW depending on the direction you need... again I dont remember which direction you need. Just mess with it. It doesnt take much to make them move... let me see if I can find a pic...

The only adjustment is up and down. No side to side. Bolt is correct. Adjustment screw is located on the inside (grill side) edge of each light.

i do notice alot better acceleration and low end torque, but im not sure if its from the chip or the intake and spacer. they were all installed at the same time.
