If it's anything like the stock headlights there should be a hex key nut sticking up from the back of the headlight. You can use an allen key to turn it and adjust the height of the beam

yea thats how i thought you adjusted the lights but i dont see a screw for the adjustment.... i even tired to take it out to see what kind of bulb was in it and i cant even get them out......... there is 2 screws on top and a clip towards the center but they are held at the bottom somewhere?

and about the springs yes i do plan on selling them or scraping them i have no use for them i need to find new OEM ones first. i'm calling around monday to get prices

Yeah you got spyders, worst headlights ever designed. To adjust them you have to completely remove the headlight from the car because the adjusting bolts are on the very back. Our headlights are held to the car by 2 screws, a push pin, and a ball socket bolt thing to the fender. You need to pull really hard straight out to get it loose.

Mods: GT-R exhaust, CRABs O3 w/FPU, 35% tint, 5000K HID lows/fogs, upper/lower recessed grilles, Racingline strut bar, concept darts, white LEDs everywhere

I still have my stock springs, I haven't decided if I want to keep them or not, But to be honest I can't see myself ever needing them again...

If you decide to sell the lowering springs I'd be more than happy to buy them.

If you are interested I can sell you my old stock springs.
They came off a base model 4 door. Car had about 30K when they were removed.
I have all 4
I'll be happy to make a legitimate for sale post if you are interested.

I would assume your stock shocks are still in, but god knows what condition they're in.

thanks for offering but the base 2.4 springs on the front are different than the 3.5l GT there is more weight so they are stiffer springs. i'm going to my local junk yard this week sometime to get a back set of springs......... have not decided if i want to just buy new struts and springs for the front or take a chance on a used set........

good point, I thought they may be stiffer. I'm sure you'll find something. I know I've seen complete shock/spring assemblies for sale on eBay.
