High Beam Aim?

Does anyone by chance have any recommendations as to how to fix it without having to send it back?

If these are the headlamp assemblies you purchased, (I looked on the Carid website to find them,) in the rear view I only see 1 possible adjuster on the back side in the upper right corner. (Phillips hex bolt with fender washer underneath, as denoted.) That being said, and with everything I've done to my headlights recently, I would assume that this is solely a vertical adjustment, and for both, simultaneously.

(Fortunately for me, however, I had 4 adjusters on my Winjet assemblies.)

Usually You can find a wall and kinda gauge it from there, obviously everyone has a preference, some like directly in front of you at the road, some like kinda further down the road, but it’s normally a screw that’ll have a slight change in direction per turn

I already stated where the adjustments are...and it's not "anyone's preference." There are actually SAE Guidelines.

Had the same issue with a 2001 I had a few years ago. Low beams were perfect but highs lit up the trees about 20 feet up. Bought 2 new high beam bulbs and fix the issue. Could not see any defect with the ones I took out. Just to be sure, swap the high bulbs and see if the issue follows. If so, bad bulb.

I switched the bulbs between the two assemblies to see if that changes anything I haven’t put the driver side back in yet but I will be doing that today
