Headlight adjustment on 1999 Superduty

So Iíve got the XL package with the sealed beam . They need adjustment what is the preferred distance from the building or wall ?
Do you measure the center of the head light to ground then make the ďmark ď on the wall ?

I have a complete mental block on this for some reason .

I just adjust mine at night, pull over make an adjustment then drive. Repeat as necessary until they are where you want them.

Re: Headlight adjustment on 1999 Superduty

I too generally use the stop somewhere at night technique.

When doing it against a wall, I usually park front bumper at the 20' mark. Then aim the lights. I shoot for beam center about 1/1/2" lower than headlight center, and slightly to the passenger side. Usually gets me a good starting point.
