    Headlight Issue

    I discovered the reason why my pass side headlight was aimed so much lower than my driver side, the hex/locking bolts that the assembly rotates on to go up and down is loose therefore the light goes up all the way but then drops a little bit causing an obvious uneveness, tried to tighten one of them and it got tight but no tight enough then it would spin and get tight like it was but obvously not enough again, then it snapped in half, went to a gm parts dealer and they said that he has to order the whole assembly just for the bolts, if anyone knows where i can get them without having to order the whole assembly or has any extra some how it would be extremely appreciated
    thanks in advance
