Looking for a quality set. The set I bought both point slightly to the right. The seller says that's normal. Reviews from other sellers say their light patterns are scattered. Is this just the aftermarket world?? Thanks.

Guessing this is for your 2006 GP (try including that when asking model-specific questions)...

While I'm sure there's a quality gap to aftermarket housings, you should have a bit of adjustment on there to mess with (pretty sure I have eBay ones on my '06, as well). Just nose up to within ~5-10ft of a wall/garage door on a flat surface, and watch the slow change in focal point of the light as you turn the adjusters. Someone will have a way more fancy approach, or exacting numbers, but it's not super critical, as long as they point the right direction in the end.

Yeah my bad...for my '06 GP.
The only adjustments on these lights, stock or aftermarket, are up and down. No left or right. Some manufacturers say they aim slightly to the right so not to blind on-coming drivers. Makes sense I guess...but most of us don't drive 2 lane roads. It just seems aftermarket light assemblies aim differently but whatever, no biggie. I'll deal with it now.
