Help with headlight adjustment

Does anyone know if the headlights in our SRTs(2014) can be adjusted? I'm not sure if it's my low beams or my DRL kit from CLStech thats blinding people. I took it to the dealership and they said it can't be done and that it could be because my vehicle is lowered. I'm tired of getting flashed and would like to fix this.

@renzo , your Headlight DRL ribbons should be dim with low beams on. If this is not the case the DRL harness may not be functioning properly. Let me know if they stay bright at all times...

It stays bright all the time and it's been that way since install about 10 months ago.

That is not how the kit should work. Please check your connection to the passenger low beam. Turning the headlights on should make the ribbons dim.

You can also take the passenger low beam wire directly to the + post in the fuse box to ensure the relay is firing. When the relay clicks it should dim the ribbons.

Please PM me for further troubleshooting.
