Can't see in the dark!

Just upgraded springs on the disco, had a problem not getting quite what I wanted due to something re the abs preventing my preferred spring being installed (so the fitter said).

Sitting a bit higher in the back than the front, took it for a drive last night and couldn't see past my nose, obviously the headlight angle being affected downwards. There are also polyairs in the back. The fitter said it may settle down and correct, I am doubtful, he will fix if it doesn't. Will polyairs soften? Don't think he meant the springs.

Can anyone advise of their own experience?
cheers

Hi John
You should be able to adjust the lights up. Simple job to do either a screw driver or small socket.
Drive truck up to a wall, lights on full mark centre of beam on wall back away 10 feet, then bring beams up to that mark
hope this is of some help.

Put some weight in the back for a couple of weeks and the springs will gradually settle down a bit. With the polyairs you only need about 3 psi when the car is empty, just enough to stop then pinching b/w the spring coils.
