I don't know if thats the problem he's having here.. did you not read his full post? he said he tried to refit the stock ones and he was then having the same problem as the clear corners.... maybe there is an adjustment you ended up changing when you removed the OEM corners.. I guess the only thing you can do is check that and if that doesn't fit it, use a crow bar and try and pry your headlights and wack your fender really hard to see if you can bend them together..... :P

I see what he's saying. The rail to slide the corner light in is attached to the headlight and if the headlight is moved just a tab bit in the wrong direction it could cause the corner light to come unalligned.
Atleast, that's what I think he said. LOl, I think I'll fiddle arround with that tomorrow and see how that goes. In the meantime, any other ideas or suggestions are always welcome.

Autotechnica is correct. There are 5 bolt screws that hold the headlight assembly in place. Once removed, there are 5 plastic mounts (what the bolt screws fit into) that can be screwed in or out to adjust how high or low the assembly sits. Because the turn signal slides into the headlight assembly, the headlight assembly will dictate how the turn signal sits in the hole as well. Either that or you didn't get the turn signal in the two guides on the side of the headlight assembly correctly.
...i just wanted to say headlight aseembly one more time...

and once I attempted to put the stock lights back they were having the same problem.
