I recently installed Silverstars for my highs,lows and fogs. Install went well but it seemed my right low light was pointed up higher than my left. So I turned the screw on top of the left bulb and I was able to adjust it to match the right. Problem fixed...right. NO....now when I turn on my HIGHS the left light is now a 1/2 foot higher then the right. My question is...Is there a way to adjust the highs apart from the lows?

The low beam on the right always shines a little higher that the left side. This is true for almost all the vehicles in US (left hand drive). The purpose is to let the driver see any object better on side of the road.
You probably noticed this because the Silverstar is much more brighter than the stock bulbs.

Hope this helps.

Cheers !!!

They are not adjustable independently. They are locked together. You may have the one bulb not quite seated properly. This happened to me. I reached in and found that even though it was twisted and locked, one of the bulbs tabs wasn't properly seated under the housing tab. If all else fails, adjust the low beams as these are the critical ones and keep the highs wacky. Then have the dealer look at it.

You may want to look at this chart from the Service Manual:

Thanks...I will definetely check to make sure they are seated correctly.

Ok...I checked and they are both seated correctly. What do you think caused this?

I guess next time it's back in the dealer I will have them look at it.
