Like minds think the same. I had done the same thing.

I still have a full deck.
I just shuffle slower.

I wish I would have aligned my stock headlights before doing this to have a direct comparison. I knew the stock alignment was way too high from the start but I adjusted the headlights after installing the LED bulbs. I'm mainly a daily commuter so I'm prepping for darker commutes coming up soon.
Just looked into the retaining clip, to get it you need to buy the complete headlight housing. I have yet to see a close up of the complete cyclops LED and driver, realistically the one I installed has the same problem, largest part of the weight is outside the headlight housing, the only thing keeping the assembly in the mounting socket is the ball. All the beam patterns of that link no longer work.I think come winter my LED low beam will be coming out, and a search for something better will take place.

can i say a big thank you to onewizard for his link, i was trying for ages and it kept coming up with some spurious link.
With onewizards link I was actually able to see what the original poster was trying to show and I'm well impressed.
Thank you both
