Good evening. Not a lot of information out there currently on the 2021 for headlight adjustments. I found what I believe to be the screws for the adjustments but the lights are not moving either up or down. Anyone done this yet?

Nobody? I swear my headlamps shifted downward after having a leveling kit installed. That sharp line the HIDs creates is literally hitting the ground like 30' in front of my truck. I drove from Florida to West Virginia two days after leveling and that is when i noticed it

I don't know about Lariats. The Platinums have led's and I believe they are self adjusting to compensate for loads and towing.

That is why I am confused. I have a Lariat with the 502A Quad beam. It is like the self leveling either isn't working or the leveling kit threw it off and they adjusted way down. I'm telling you my low beams are not even hitting the bumper or a car 40' in front of me

I thought Lariats with 502A came with the single projectors with LED and not the quad reflectors with LED.

Maybe the installers damaged or cut the sensors? They have to be incorporated in the suspension. Another reason for me to leave this truck alone.

Are the self-leveling headlights available with the quad reflectors assembly or only on the single projector ones? I would doubt that the self leveling would adjust the whole housing unit for the reflector lights.

You can see in the Dual projector housing how easier it would be to have the leveling capability vs the quad assembly.

Don't believe anything like that has happened. I think the lights just need adjusting. The screws for the adjustments just are not moving the lights

I thought Ford was calling the Dual Projectors the quads. Guess i was misinformed. The Lariat with 502A has the same headlamps as the higher trim levels
