I actually googled the regs for Queensland recently, and one of the things I looked at was the lighting regs, I'm sure if you google with a few well chosen words/phrases you'll find the SA equivalent.

The cop shop would be my last alternative just in case you get an officious one. Happy hunting.

The RAA has a machine that they use to align the head lights, they will do this for a small fee. Also a quality crash shop will have one.

cheers shane.

What headlight regs exactly are you trying to find?
Look up Vehicle Standards under Transport SA in the phone book. Their number is there and they are the ones you need to talk to.

The service manual has measurements for aligning headlights.
If you have them aligned to factory specs, you shouldn't have a problem (alignment wise, you could still have issues if you run higher wattage globes or HID).

i did what you posted truckster,
but being HID's thought they where still a little high, so adjusted them down more.
(needed to do this, cuz high beam was lighting up the the top of the treats)

not too bad now, and no one flashing me :D

but check this out; http://www.patrol4x4.com/forum/auto-electrical-37/radio-hids-=-interference-61909/
