headlamp alignment

how can you align your headlamps by shining them on your garage wall ?

It's actually quite involved to do right . You have to have a level floor and know how to take the measurements.

Hoppy, for one maker, sell an alignment kit to do it. Look up "Hopkins Manufacturing" on the web in www.google.com

they actually showed us how to do this at training one time.

in the service manual---there will be specifications, distance from the bumper to the wall, height from the floor and distance apart. place a piece of tape on the wall at exactly those specs, cover one headlight and adjust the other side, one side at a time. the floor has to be level!

what actually happens in work--- park 20-30 feet from the door and adjust the heights of the center of the beams to about my shin/knee area, never had a complaint yet.
