Headlight timeout and aiming?

ok so since I installed my HID's and leveled my truck my headlights are way to freaking bright im getting flashed left and right, I know almost all vehicles have a way to adjust the aim of the headlights but I cant seem to find it on my truck, anyone know where it is located?

also my headlights used to turn off when set on auto after about 1 minute when i shut the truck off. now it takes around 5 minutes is there a way to shorten the time out on them?

The timeout adjustment is listed in the owners manual. As to the aiming theres two hex head screws that you should see sticking out of the valance between the grill and radiator when you open the hood.

2006 IS NOT THE SAME AS 2008 TRUCK,

there is a torqs head on the back side area of head light housing, look straight down behind housing on the radiator side and you can see it..,, this will adjust them up or down.... i have the same issue since i leveled mine, getting flashed

well first off , i didn't think that owners manual reference was for a 6.4 because you had already given out incorrect instructions for the light adjustment?so i thought you were probably just following up with more incorrect info........
