Headlights too high

I have been getting flashed quite a bit a night. I think my headlights are aimed too high. I have a stock 2010 F250 with the heavy duty front springs.

That's just it, I'm not really sure how to. I wonder if I complain at the dealer, if they will cover it under warranty

Thanks for the location, I am looking at it now and I see what looks like an inverted torx fitting.

It might be wise to buy a service manual for this truck.

Yeah that torx fitting. I just use a 1/4 socket, one of the smallest ones (can remember if it was 6 point or 12 point. But just try home sockets until one matches.
When you go to adjust them drive up to a garage door or wall at night and start adjusting while looking where the light beam goes on the wall.

Thank you. Sometimes it's the most obvious things that escape me.
