Driving lights

Hi everyone
Have an issue with my driving lights pointing too high (good for possum spotting lol). Obviously I have adjusted them as low as I can but short of bending the mounts and possibly cracking the bullbar coating unsure what to do.
Thanks Steeley

Can you post a photo oe "selfie". That will make it easer for us to answer. Maybe something is back to front etc.

Where is a photo please! We all appear to be just guessing. No idea of make, model or anything.

G'day Steeley,
Firstly try to understand why I guess. Does you car have a saggy bum? Are the brackets on the lights the right way round and not 180 degrees out? Is the bulbar fitted correctly?

Failing anything obvious, get some nice thick washers and grind them down to a tapper. Fit them between the driving light bracket and the bulbar mount. That will do the trick but remember, it's only a containment measure for potentially a bigger issue.

Fab.

Usually the piece that goes on the bull bar and is curved on the top to support the lights has a slot which is deeper on one side than the other. This should be towards the front to allow the bolts to lean forward to lower the lights.

Steeley,

i have made and placed shims under some spotlights that won't adjust to the required position.

Some spots don't have the amount of travel you need or they don't have that fine adjustment required. I think I have about .5mm stainless shims on my current vehicle to get them where I want.

Steeley,

Surprised nobody has asked (yet) for the brand of vehicle, bullbar and lights?

Are the mounting pads for the lights on the bullbar horizontal to the ground? If, for example, you have you those mounting pads setting down below "flat" at the back, then the lights WILL point up in the sky if you've run-out of adjustment on the lights themselves.

A photo of your set-up would be invaluable to assist us to help you.
