Default Ready aim, shoot

Put up with my headlights not giving me much forward vision for long enough so decided that I would switch them out over this past weekend. I’m just using standard headlights but look forward vision is no better than it was before. The truck apparently was hit in the front at one time when I purchased the truck the grill was all broken up and the driver side headlight bucket was slightly fold it in I straightened everything up but now the question is what’s the proper way to aim the headlights? They seem to be going off more open to the air then straightahead down the road. What screws do I use on the headlight bucket and what do I need To do to get some forward vision?

These 2 screws adjust the headlight.

Center of the beam at or below the center level of the headlight on the truck. Beam height measured from flat level ground at 50 feet. Headlight height measured from the ground to the center of the headlight on the truck.
