    Hey guys with the projectors amazingly sharp cutoff I'm having a pretty big problem with my headlight housing bouncing around on the crap aftermarket bracket. Idk if a stock headlight bracket would move around less then the eagle eye bracket or if I should just try my best to shim it. Any ideas would be helpful thank you!

    Might be a stupid question, but do you have the tab inserted properly? There's the obvious one towards the center of the car, but on the other end there's one more smaller one. Kinda have to fandangle it to align it

    Yes I do have both tabs inserted. Its crazy how much they shake. I went and stuffed a bunch of cardboard box around it till I can figure out a more permanent fix

    My brackets are aftermarket but don't shake too horribly. I do notice it though. If you move it by hand, it is just the bracket bending right? Nothing actually sloppy

    Shim it. I've used stock and aftermarket brackets, and they both move.

    Put something under the light, between it and the bumper to help get rid of the bouncing. I used a few pieces of weatherstripping that I had laying around.
