How do I go about adjusting my headlights and can the high beams be adjusted independently of the low beams? My high beams shine right in front of the car. I know on my 95 Aurora they had a bubble level for adjusting them?

My low beams are horrible. I suspect it has to do with adjustment. BUT, with the leveling system, how do you get it better? I guess I should read the Owners Manual... I have Silverstar Ultras and they are barely more noticeable than streetlights... I think they are aimed poorly. Too low maybe in front of car.
The vehicle should be properly prepared as follows:
The vehicle should be placed so the headlamps are 25 ft. (7.6 m) from a light colored wall or other flat surface.
The vehicle must have all four tires on a perfectly level surface which is level all the way to the wall or other flat surface.
The vehicle should be placed so it is perpendicular to the wall or other flat surface.
The vehicle should not have any snow, ice or mud attached to it.
The vehicle should be fully assembled and all other work stopped while headlamp aiming is being done.
The vehicle should be normally loaded with a full tank of fuel and one person or 160 lbs. (75 kg) on the driver’s seat.
Tires should be properly inflated.
Headlamp aiming is done with the vehicle low beam lamps. The high beam lamps will be correctly aimed if the low beam lamps are aimed properly. The headlamp aiming devices are under the hood near the headlamps.
Trying to adjust using the system described in the owners manual don't seem to move the lights at all. Has anyone had the same results? I've tried this on both my 2002 and 2003 and they don't seem to move!
