Can high beams be adjusted separately from low beams

Can high beams be adjusted separately from low beams

Postby dcarlson12 [OP] » August 4th 2018, 11:24pm

2002 Astro
My right low beam is aimed too high and it is aimed higher than the left low beam.
When I switch to high beams, left and right are at the same height.

Is there a way to adjust the right low beam that does not affect the high beam?

Thks,
Dwight

No way I know of with the composite headlights. Talk to a service shop about having them aligned. Do that and you will know they are aimed as well as they can be....

I keep the left lower so it doesn't blind oncoming traffic, the right higher to get light a bit further out. Without seeing your pattern it's tough to say for sure, but it sounds like it may be ok as is unless there's a severe disparity between them.
