That almost looks like some issue with the lenses maybe? Got a picture of the headlights?

Stock GM would have had “Sylvania” stamped on the face of the lens.
I haven’t checked the lenses, but they were sealed in GM boxes and they are stamped on the back with GM and Made in USA.

Here is a picture of the headlights and boxes they came in.

Any chance the beam could be off due to the actual headlight bulbs? Even though the Sylvania bulbs are name brand, could they have defects that could cause that type of beam patterns?

Drawing a blank on this one as they look like they’re legit GM…the early ones were from Sylvania so I guess they switched suppliers later on?

I’ve been thinking about trying to track down some factory lights - so tired of fooling with the aftermarket ones.

Does changing the adjustment remove the fence pattern? In the photos, they look to be aimed pretty high into the trees.

Yea, I noticed that the beam looked like it was aimed high as well. I’m hoping it is just a matter of adjusting them. I am going to try and adjust them when it stops raining. lol Hopefully, that will fix the issue.

On the videos I seen there was 2 types of adjustments. One was the headlamp ass'y to the body and 2 was the light beam.

From what I have read, headlights can be adjusted up/down and left/right.

@ThreeD

Did you ever get the lights sorted out?
I took it to my friend's yesterday. He is going to put a grille insert in for me and he said he would also check out the headlights and adjust them. I tinkered with them a few weeks back and actually noticed a difference. So, I am optimistic that my friend will be able to adjust them. I will post an update as soon as I get it back. Hopefully, by this weekend. Thank you.
