HID conversion

Does anyone have the specs on setting up the height of the HID headlamps. My son replaced his standard ones with stock HID for 2010 Camaro. He's been getting flashed as if there a little high.

Re: HID conversion

Even when aimed right they look like the hi-beams are on. They'er just bright.

Maybe aim them down some with the lights on at night to get an idea where they'll be ok ?

Re: HID conversion

I think I've seen info about adjusting the headlights in the owners manual. I also found this thread on Camaro5. Not sure if either is helpful but if not Camaro5 has lots more good info.

Re: HID conversion

Thanks for the replies. We were able to measure one and it looks like the top of the beam from 12' is 27.5" high. His were at 31.5 to start with. The install was a 2010 Camaro to a 2010 Camaro in case anyone is thinking about swapping. Big difference.
