Headlight's angle after lowering.

Hello, I am new to this forum. I believe this is my first thread. I have a 335i E90.

I installed Koni Sport with H&R sport this weekend. Everything went well in terms of the install.

I noticed now that my headlights points down to the ground. I was wondering what is the issue and solution for this? Thanks

I need a new leveling bar for the front or rear? Is this standard that you have to replace it everything you do suspension work? Thanks

Maybe your headlight level sensors were disconnected, or reconnected wrong. Check out this thread by JAJ:

The front and rear sensors together are supposed to adjust headlight level automatically if you put something in your trunk, or adjust your ride height.

It is also possible to adjust headlight level manually using screws in each front corner of the engine bay. But, make sure your headlight sensors are working properly first.

check your headlight leveling sensor arm. its supposed to reattach horizontally, but some people forget and put it back on in the vertical position. that could throw it off too.
