Re: Headlight Adjustment



Thanks Again,

I added relays, upgraded the wiring and installed H4 lamps for the Hi/Lo beam lights.  The difference is amazing to say the least.  I bought the now obsolute OSRAM 64205 lamps, relays and sockets from Daniel Stern years ago.  It was a project well worth doing.  As for the headlight alignment the article you referenced was perfect.  I did the initial adjustment per the article then went to a shop to have it checked - the tech said he could not do any better.

You are right, go to about 12:35 minutes in and he discusses starting the 4 headlight system, but I agree does not really
go into it as well as he does the two bulb. But the general setup / explanation / process he uses for the 2 bulb applies to
the 4 bulb too. The Mopar factory service manual goes into the process of course, but it assumes you have a funky
dealer headlight aiming contraption. If you get the low beam adjusted to your satisfaction then you can concentrate on
the high beam.

Look at # 5 and # 6 in the "Aiming Procedure" section on this web page and see if that helps:
