Owner's manual should have it.

Owners manual is very much lacking in telling you where are at.

Pretty easy to find on the top backside of the light.

Match the centre of the light to the height at 25ft against a wall. If you tow or load heavy aim it 3 inches lower.

Yes, it's listed in the Owner's Manual. No, it's not obvious as to where it is, the diagram in the OM is piss poor. Maybe one of the smart people in here can post a picture of where it is, that would help a LOT...

I "leveled" my truck by removing the rear blocks, now I have to lower the lights a bit, and can't find the adjustment screw either...

The OP was asking about a 2018, your sig block lists a 2011, and I'm positive the headlights between a 2018 and 2011 are entirely different...

Been following this a bit and decided that a pic is worth a thousand words. Understanding that this is a pic of my HL adjustment, you will note that it is in a 'pocket' on top of my HL assembly. It is white in color and a 'hex nut' design and plastic. As my truck is an XLT, the more 'luxurious' models may have a similar adjustment made of gold, silver, or platinum and may be made of those minerals. That being of no real consequence, your HL adjustment may be in a similar position. :cool:

I found it , it is on top at backside of housing, it is plastic . No screw , it has a gear at bottom. Insert no. 2 phillips screw driver and turn clockwise to raise light. I first thought it was a breather for light ,to keep moisture from building in light.

Perfect! Just went outside to confirm this, went to a local Rite Aid, used their brick wall to adjust my lights, lowered them by 1 brick, good to go now!
