Default help 98-02 headlight fitment issues oem

Ok I ponied up and spent about $500 on oem headlights. They fit like ****. I can get them close to fitting the bumper right but Then I cant adjust the beams. Did gm sub out the new headlights and let somebody else make them? I dont have my originals anymore or I would swap brackets. Anyways if anybody has any recommendations please let me know.

Don't try to make them fit the bumper first. Align them first, then check the gaps. If the gaps are worse than original, then tweak it A LITTLE bit, realign the headlights, and check again.
