Default Headlight adjustment

I bought a 2010 F150 Supercrew Lariet
with a leveling kit installed and oncoming traffic blinks there lights at me as if I have on my brights. The owners manual stated that the lights can be adjusted down by turning the adjustment screws counter clockwise. Is this counter clockwise from standing in front of the truck and does anyone know how many revolutions would be necessary?
Thanks in advance.

Counter clockwise is counter clockwise when looking down on the screw. Start at dusk with your headlights on and facing a garage door or wall. Turn the screw until you see the beam dropping. the Right side beam should be slightly higher than the left.

Default 2010 headlight adjustment

If you are looking at the adjusting screw in front of your truck turn the screw clock wise with a Philips screwdriver and it will lower your headlights.

This thread might be old but informative. After my level I adjusted mine level after seeing the right light was higher. I find out, here, that the right was supposed to be higher. Adjusted them tonight to the right being higher..... Great info
