Default Installed the LEDs

What a pain (literally), my left main headlight bulb fought me for an hour. I couldn't get the lock collar to engage. Otherwise it went well. Not sure about alignment though. The old ones where pointed at the ground and couldn't get them high enough to do any good. The LED's pointed high, so I cranked the housings down as low as they would go. But I think they may still be too high. No good way to check them without going out on the road. They do seem to put out more light up close, but will they go the distance which is what the other ones didn't.

On other cars, you male a horizontal line on the wall at headlight height. Make 2 vertical lines crossing the horizontal line crossing the center of the headlight. Back straight up (I forget how far exactly but should be available online). Adjust lights so low beams are in lower right quatrant. High beams should be slightly upper right.

I expect that DanielStern has info on his site.

I know how to aim the headlights, it's these LED bulbs that are the problem. So much so, I'm pulling them out and sending them back.
