Default 04-05 HID Leveling problems

Hey guys is there any way to level out 04-05 HIDs without using a leveling switch? Reason is I did an front end conversion on my 02, and I put 04 HIDs and they are pretty level but still not perfect. Any way to align them?

maybe i am wrong. i am not as familiar with 04-05's. i would assume there is left/right/up/down adujustment though. check out your owners manual.
