Your stocks probably were brighter if you had Sylverstars or something like that...8000K what were you thinking wasting your money for those.
Now don't get me wrong I'm not trying to put you down, but those 8000K kits belong in ricer cars since they do nothing about performance. Could've just painted your headlights blue instead...

Anyhow, when leveling your headlights, you should find a level ground and at 25ft from a wall(or another parked car) your hot spot (where light has max intensity) should be on the bumper of the other car(try finding a car that has similar bumper height to yours ). So basically what you're doing is getting your beam to drop at least a couple of inches every 25ft. You might have to go lower if ppl. start flashing you.

^100% WRONG, how can you comment on something you haven't even seen?

I have 8000k HIDs that replaced my Silverstars.

LET ME TELL YOU: The HID's are WAY brighter than the Silverstars ever were. They have a blue tinge, but for the most part they're white. I didn't even need to adjust them when I installed them for my low beams, they were set pretty much perfectly already.

They're REAL HID's right? Not those fake POS 'HID lookalike bulbs'. If they're fake ones, the Silverstars WOULD be brighter.

9006 bulbs right?

Well im glad u got to state or opinion on these lights but i would like to tell u without sounding like a ass but i didnt really ask for your opinon on the kit. and i payed 250 for 2 brand new headlights and a hid kit so dont tell me i wasted my money to u find out how much i spent.

avenger i have the real kit, when i got them the guy i bought them from said they should be level already, but i should check them and i replaced the headlights so its not like i can do a swap i guess later tonight i can take my old headlights and put the bulb in there sence those are level. and just shine them on the grow and even the other out.

Ive Got A Hemi!

The service manual has a writeup about how to build a headlight aiming area. All you need is a flat area about 30 feet long, a tape measure, and some duct tape.
